The trial to Sandro Rosell, in ten keys
“I tell her that the money is kept at home in a safe that I will later show her. I tell my lawyers that I have a feeling that this is a conspiracy. But from whom? And why? I don’t know.” Then he explains that the police officers who were doing the search record images of the tickets, and this is when he shows his indignation: “I am very angry. I tell him that the envelope is not mine, that I guess he already knows perfectly well and that they are recording everything to filter the pictures in the press, because when you teach cash on a search the people immediately think that the investigated person is a criminal. I am convinced that with this recording the operation begins to turn me in the movie’s baddie to public opinion. ”
Rosell adds that when the police opened the envelope, he saw that the tickets were correlative, and he let him know. “I tell you whoever put the money in there is a lot of donkey because the tickets are correlative; they sweat and they take them away,” recalls the former Barça president, who describes the time as “Kafkian”.

Or a mix of everything? ”
