The 58th edition of BARÇA MAGAZINE offers up an in-depth look at Tito Vilanova and his first days as FC Barcelona's manager
The newest edition of BARÇA MAGAZINE, which is set to hit the stands this Tuesday, will offer up an in-depth look at FC Barcelona’s new manager, Tito Vilanova. Under the title ‘Tito’s hour’ the Azulgrana publication takes the reader through the Catalan’s first days at the Barça helm, in addition to a collection of the best photos from his first training session with the team to the squad’s 2012/13 debut against Hamburg SV.
Moreover, the Barça members will be introduced to the coordinator of Barça’s youth system and the man who secured Tito Vilanova’s signature from Figueres, Jaume Oliver, who trained the reserve side when Vilanova became an Azulgrana player. BARÇA MAGAZINE dusted off the Club’s old documents -contracts, federal records, official correspondence - to find out a little more about the new first team manager. Amongst other things, the reader will know why Vilanova was known as El Marqués [The Marquis] while he was a Masía resident.
Jordi Alba’s first day as an Azulgrana
In addition to Vilanova, BARÇA MAGAZINE also takes aim at Jordi Alba. The Catalan, Barça’s only signing for the 2012/13 season, returns to the Club where he learned how to play football. Readers will get an in-depth look at Jordi Alba’s first day as an Azulgrana first-team player in addition to an overview of his time as a Barça youth player.
Also, with the Estrella Damm Joan Gamper Trophy looming, BARÇA MAGAZINE will offer up an analysis of Sampdoria, Barça’s opponent in the 47th edition of the Club’s summer tournament, a behind-the-scene look at the Club’s new social headquarter project, the 17 titles won in the 2011/12 season and a detailed explanation of the Club’s 2012/13 fiscal year. In addition, Josep Miquel Abad, Barcelona Olympic Games coordinator, and Javier Bordas, director responsible to the Club’s futsal team, are interviewed by the magazine.
