Fan of the week from 12 to 18 January
Weloba discovers you the 14th fan of the week: Joan Forteza. A Culé that changed Palma de Mallorca (Spain) for Toronto, heat for cold. But despite that, Joan is happy in a little town near Toronto called Whitby. He told us he never misses any Barça match through the radio and that he shares his toughts with his parents in Mallorca.
Name: Joan Forteza
Age: 45 years old
Where does he live?: Whitby (Canada)
Where was he born: Palma (Illes Balears)
Living in Canada
Our Cule revealed that "lifestyle there is very different. It's difficult to adapt, but it's a country that welcomes you well." It's not strange that he noticed a change, because between Mallorca and Canada there are more than 11,000 km. Joan confessed he missed "the warmth of home."
The city is 50km south-east Toronto. According to Joan, "people works in Toronto and lives in Whitby". Regarding the weather, he explained that "in winter we have -17ºC, with a chill temperature of -30ºC. It's complicated. Every day I have to take snow out from the front door."
Barça - Mallorca
"Listening to Barça in the Catalan radio is like a connection with my parents, because they also does that," he said. Joan also admitted that despite being from Mallorca, his favorite team ever is Barça. Despite that he confessed that his father was a footballer, "the first to score for RCD Mallorca in First Division!"
