Bieber daz­zles Barcelona stars

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

EVEN Barcelona’s stel­lar cast of mil­lion­aires were star-struck on Novem­ber 21 by a visit from Cana­dian pop sen­sa­tion Justin Bieber to the Span­ish cham­pi­ons train­ing ground.

Bieber, who per­formed in Barcelona last night, was pho­tographed with Barca’s star strike tri­umvi­rate of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ney­mar.

The 22-year-old also showed off his skills on the pitch with a series of left-footed fin­ishes Messi would be proud of in a kick around with Ney­mar and mid­fielder Rafinha.

“Im­pos­si­ble to drib­ble this de­fender... @justin­bieber,” Ney­mar posted to his 26 mil­lion Twit­ter fol­low­ers with a photo of the Brazil­ian dis­pos­sess­ing Bieber.

Hun­dreds of Beliebers – as Bieber’s ded­i­cated fan base are known – have queued for up to a month out­side Madrid’s Pala­cio de De­portes where Bieber will per­form to­day just to get as close as pos­si­ble to their idol when the gates fi­nally open.

How­ever, even a so­cial me­dia phe­nom such as Bieber can’t com­pare to Messi’s num­bers.

Bieber’s 77 mil­lion Facebook likes falls 10 mil­lion be­hind five-time World Player of the Year Messi’s tally.
