“I believe that Barcelona is politicized,” commented the new president of the Idol team, Juan Carlos Estrada that on Wednesday assumed the presidency of the most popular sport institution of the country.
Estrada made this declaration prior to the resignation of Eduardo Maruri, during a meeting with the Mayor Jaime Nebot at the Town Hall of Guayaquil.
The new leader of Barcelona was invited to the program “Soccer Code” of Ecuavisa. Estrada avoided any questions regarding the meeting with Nebot, since he is also have been working in his post as a president for life for the institution.
Estrada denied Nebot’s involvement on Maruri’s decision to quit. The plastic surgeon said that he is capable of leading an institution so big in Guayaquil, he also pointed out that the objective is to be champion of the Ecuadorian tournament of 2011.
