The staff thanked the fans for their support throughout the season


The speeches of the players on the pitch at the Camp Nou and after having walked the streets of Barcelona are all gone in one direction: that of gratitude towards fans who have been with the team until the last minute.

It is said that the fans of a football team is the player number 12. And for the Barca players, this saying makes more sense than ever. That is why the focus of their parliaments has been precisely this, the public support, without which certainly would have been more difficult to get the title and the Champions League.

So players have led the first team to an overflow crowd that filled the stands of Camp Nou with a desire to hold a double for the story.
