Military man Joaquim Peris de Vargas was one of the most controversial characters in the entire history of the club
He first joined the board in 1910 as vice president, a role he would hold under several different presidents. Following the resignation of Àlvar Presta in September 1914, Peris de Vargas became caretaker president of Futbol Club Barcelona. His presidency was marred by constant controversies, as he always insisted on imposing his own personal criteria, which even led to his own players rising against him. Peris de Vargas was dictatorial in his ways, and once even went as far to say “Barcelona is my club” in the sense of possessing and not belonging..
He only left the club when the Captain General of Catalonia, urgend on by a group of members and seeing that during his temporary presidency the situation at the club has become unbearable, obliged him to resign at the end of the 1914-1915 season.
