He is 86 years old. Barcelona are looking to win another Spanish league title


The second title will come with obtaining the recognition of the league title in 1937, which the club demands to register in its name, due to the events that the country witnessed at the time.

League in 1937

In 1937, a number of teams could not form the Spanish League as usual due to the ongoing civil war. This means that no competitions were recognized during this year.

But earlier this year, Levante were officially recognized as having won the Copa del Rey in 1937 after winning the ‘Free Spain’ Cup, which was held between Espanyol, Girona, Valencia and Levante.

Real Madrid was then under the control of the fascist regime of General Franco and was not allowed to participate in the Free Spanish Cup, while Barcelona withdrew and headed for a European tour, to escape persecution and collect funds to keep the club alive.

However, earlier Barcelona won a league called the Mediterranean League. At the time, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid could not participate in the tournament, but according to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona, ​​Espanyol, Girona, Valencia, Levante, Gimnastico, Granollers and Athletic Castellón all participated in the championship competition.

They went on to point out that the 1939 national championship, held soon after the end of the war, and in which a number of teams, including Barcelona, ​​did not participate, was recognized as a La Liga victory.

In the 39 league, Sevilla beat Racing Ferrol 6-2 in the final, but in a competition without the participation of Catalan teams. The Blaugrana confirm that the league title was legitimate in 1937, as were the Sevilla League and the Levante Cup.

And if Barcelona manage to meet his demands, he will win the 1937 league title, and his tally will rise to 28 titles, to score two league titles in one week.
