Perpignan players visit Nou Camp

Miquel Pellicer

The USA Perpignan team exchanged photos, good wishes and shirts with the Barça players this morning and they were all clearly impressed later on in the morning when they visited the Nou Camp installations.

There’s a great mix of nationalities in the Perpignan team and the expressions of admiration for the Club and the team came in a variety of languages, but all the players were well impressed with the facilities and the stadium.

Fans of the team

At Perpignan, like at Barça, we are all equal and the most important thing is not the individual, but rather the team as a whole”.

Twinning agreement

USAP and Barcelona made history with their twinning agreement and the best way to celebrate was to bring the two squads together. This morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper the players posed together for photos, whilst Éric Abidal broke the ice with his countrymen and Carles Puyol, Xavi and Valdés posed with Perry Freshwater and Henry Tuilagi, as Michel Joffrey and Jérome Porical clicked away with their mobiles.

USAP are due to play a game in Barcelona on April 2nd and Álvarez-Kairelis commented: “there are a lot of fans who want to see us play here and we are happy that we will be able to”. Many of the players were happy enough today after meeting some of the world’s best footballers.
