Martin Brathwaite had an embarrassing unveiling during Barcelona presentation. The striker’s life at Catalonia began at the wrong foot.
Barcelona completed the controversial signing of Martin Braithwaite from Leganes yesterday. Following the long-term injury to Ousmane Dembele and the Spanish Champions failure to address the gap in the January transfer window, the club exploited a La Liga rule that allowed them to make a stop gap signing in the former Middlesbrough striker.
The Danish international was officially presented at the Nou Camp. He was given the opportunity to show off his skills in an empty stadium. However, all he ended up doing, was make a mockery of himself when he completely messed up a rainbow flick attempt.

At least he knows how to do the kick-ups.

Even more embarrassingly, the Spanish press seemed completely uninterested in the new signing and were more focused on directing their questions to Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu. In fact, Bartomeu was asked 8 questions while only two were asked of Braithwaite.

Barcelona are currently second in the La Liga with Real Madrid at the top of the table with a point more. The club will face Eibar tomorrow before taking on Napoli next week in the Champions league round of 16 first leg.
