The nonexistent pic Messi-Faus
Last Wednesday the major directors of the phone company 'Telefónica' attended Barça's Sports City. They had to present the sponsorship agreement with the club for South America. The important moment was the photography between board and the 9 South American players (Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Bravo, Mascherano, Alves, Rafinha, Adriano, Douglas). President Bartomeu couldn't attend due to professional reasons and the representative of the club was Vice president Faus.
Some time before the photography, during the long wait, a message was sent to the organization. It was not convenient that Javier Faus and Leo Messi met for the photography. His relationship doesn't exist after the famous clash of statements at the radio station RAC1 ('Mr. Faus doesn't know anything about football,' said Messi). Faus didn't appear despite the present of the most important people of Telefonica being there. The official version is that the Vice president was working in the subsequent press conference.
Braida, a weekend in Barcelona
Ariedo Braida is again in Catalonia to work in the Sports Commission that manages the first team. The Italian coach is planning to spend Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at Barça's, and return to Italy every Monday. He will be doing the work halfway between Barcelona and Milan.
This Wednesday, Barça players left Training Center later than ever. They had to record some commercials. They had lunch later.
