The LaLiga title would show that Barcelona’s recovery is on the way

Winning LaLiga this season would show Barcelona’s “recovery process is on the right track”, according to president Joan Laporta.

Barca have suffered from poor finances and disappointing performances on the pitch in recent years.

They last won the league title in the 2018-19 campaign, while a group stage exit in this season’s Champions League means their seven-year wait to lift Europe’s top club prize for a sixth time continues.

However, Barca are enjoying a domestic resurgence under Xavi, who returned as coach after a legendary playing career at the club.

Xavi is Barca’s eighth manager since Pep Guardiola left in 2012 and his side led LaLiga heading into the World Cup break.

“The priority target is LaLiga,” Laporta told reporters. “Clear and low.

“The dressing room, with Xavi at the helm, is aware of that.

“We want to win LaLiga to show that the club’s recovery process is on the right track.”

It looks set to be a two-horse race for the title with Real Madrid, who are two points behind Barca but won when the sides met at the Santiago Bernabeu in October.

Barca get their league campaign underway again against city rivals Espanyol on December 31.
