Barça lived a quiet trip to Milan
Nothing to do with previous trips to Milan. Neither the trip in April 2010 when Barça hit a 23-hour palizón coach because of the ash cloud Eyjafjalia or the 22nd of November.
That day, the club reported that Tito Vilanova was undergoing surgery. This time, the trip to Milan was placid, with the logic voltage of the Champions League, but 'molto happy' Ibra would say, to have Pep's assistant and also with Afellay, which is already back. The game comes at a time results effervescent and so faces reflected.
There was some impact. At the airport of El Prat, Pep had to be recorded on the surface. Iniesta, Piqué and Manel Estiarte had to give up some liquid carried in the suitcase. To Afellay suffered martyrdom.
The president Sandro Rosell and the two officers who accompanied him on this flight, Moix and Bordas, were saved. In the last hours, they added five more: Faus, Cardoner, Monés, Guinovart and Arroyo. About 30 fans signed up for this first plane. The rest of the 1,200 planned will today.
In this small group, Xavi's family, his parents and brother. Cesc's girlfriend and also Cuenca took the suitcase. As the family Iniesta and Piqué.
As there was strike of ground staff, the of Barça coach waited for the players in front of the aircraft steps. The more privileged workers of minimum services that drew their phones. A score of fans were left disappointed. (via MD)
