Barcelona players criticised after post-match Halloween prank goes slightly wrong
Even the best laid plans can go awry.

BARCELONA’S PLAYERS WERE in Halloween spirit last night after winning at Getafe but their spooky prank didn’t go down well with everyone.

The La Liga champions won 2-0 at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez thanks to goals from Luis Suarez and Neymar, a result which keeps them level on points with Real Madrid.

After the game, a number of players donned masks and outfits for the night that was in it and the plan was to give manager Luis Enrique an almighty shock – although it didn’t all go according to plan.

Instead, they burst into a Getafe player’s press conference in full Halloween costume and he wasn’t overly impressed.


“It’s not for me to say. It doesn’t look right,” midfielder Mehdi Lacen said about the incident. “Everyone is responsible for what he does.

“If I won at Camp Nou, I wouldn’t do it. It’s a personal thing. I don’t know if it’s something they planned, but I don’t want to get into that game.”

From what we can make out, Adriano, Neymar, Dani Alves, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez were among those involved in the post-match dress-up.
