Barcelona FC Arrives In South Africa

Barcelona FC Arrives In South Africa”

Local media had claimed Motsepe paid Barcelona a whopping R100 million for them to come to South Africa for a second time, but Mundo Deportivo, a publication close to the Spanish club, believe it was less than half that amount.

The Belgian cautioned that not too much should be read into the result of a friendly match‚ particularly with Barca only arriving in the country on Wednesday morning.

That contest gave SA a taste of the finest of European quality as Barcelona exhibited their modern "Tiki-taka" playing style against a strong Sundown's outfit.

"Sundowns have just won the league and they will want to measure their progress on the field of play in issues such as tactical awareness and so on", he continued.

"And nobody can take away the experience that you can gain in these high level games. Now it will be a different game", said Eymael.

"But we say that Sundowns are the "Brazilians" from South Africa‚ so we will see".

The encounter between the this year's Absa Premiership winners and La Liga champions will be broadcast live on both SABC and SuperSport.

Eymael said the crowd‚ and Sundowns being keyed up to prove themselves against Barca‚ could be levellers.

"So‚ yes it's a friendly for Barcelona".

"I will enjoy the game, but even more when Sundowns win", concluded the legend.

"The big home crowd will also help Sundowns".

"We have spent approximately R900 000 on security as all tickets were sold out by Monday‚" Grobbelaar said.
