Barcelona

Barcelona are now in New York, which will be the last stop of their United States tour.

There, they had the opportunity to visit the Brooklyn Nets’ training centre as coach Xavi Hernandez afforded the players a day off.

Barcelona captains Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba visited the NBA franchise’s facilities along with youngsters Pedri, Gavi, Ferran Torres, Nico Gonzalez and Eric Garcia.

The Nets gifted them some shirts with the players’ names on the back, with their star Ben Simmons chatting with some of the Barcelona men.

Several Barcelona players are NBA fans and have demonstrated their passion for basketball on social media.

Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele imitated a Stephen Curry celebration in a pre-season friendly against Juventus.

Dembele netted twice for Barcelona and after one of the goals he ran to a camera and pretended to be asleep on his hands.

Dembele’s celebration drew a reaction from Curry, who quote tweeted Barcelona’s picture of Dembele saying: “A movement!!”, accompanied by a laughing face and a sleeping face emoji.
