Barcelona president Bartomeu replaces Rosell on influential UEFA panel

  • Print

LISBON, Portugal - Barcelona has regained a seat on an influential European football panel which it lost when former club president Sandro Rosell resigned.

The European Club Association says it appointed Barcelona's new president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, to join UEFA's Professional Football Strategy Council.

The UEFA panel is chaired by President Michel Platini and includes representatives from UEFA, clubs, leagues and players' unions.

Bartomeu also joins the 200-member ECA's board.

ECA also appointed Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward to leads its marketing panel, and promoted Real Madrid vice-president Pedro Lopez Jimenez as 2nd vice chairman to replace Rosell.

Rosell left his football duties this year after his signing of Brazil star Neymar exposed Barcelona to investigation by Spanish tax authorities.
