Barcelona’s ‘MSN’ Beliebers after training visit


BARCELONA: Even Barcelona s stellar cast of millionaires were star-struck on Tuesday by a visit from Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber to the Spanish champions training ground.
Bieber, who is set to perform in Barcelona on Tuesday, 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 on Wednesday 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.
