Barcelona president Joan Laporta is known to be quite an animated character, be it while traveling during games or press conferences he hosts. However, following the game vs PSG, it was noted that he was unusually calm.

According to a report from AS, Laporta appeared to be rather discreet after Barcelona 2-3 win against PSG. He seemed calm, and did not hug anyone, or jump with joy as he usually does, or toast to the win.

The dressing room was also puzzled by this, the report adds, but Laporta did end up giving a small treat to his team.

Burger party

The game was undoubtedly an emotionally charged affair, with the Catalans coming back from 2-1 down to win the game. While the team was celebrating, one would have expected Laporta to join in.

The Spanish politician did not. He did end up buying burgers for the entire team, though, after finding a chain in Paris that would get the orders in bulk for them.

He took advantage of the flight home to relax with Xavi and talk to him, but not about the coach’s future.

The former midfielder seems set in his decision to leave the club at the end of the season, but that will not stop Barcelona from trying to convince him to stay beyond the summer.

Christensen, Raphinha at the heart of the celebrations

The former, especially, was the surprising hero of the game, with his header sealing the win for Barcelona. As someone who is reserved by nature, Christensen was overwhelmed by the reaction of his teammates towards him and all the congratulatory wishes he received.

He was also celebrating his 28th birthday on the day of the win, which only added to the joy for him and others.

Barcelona players were advised not to stop to sign signatures after landing, and complied with the order. Marcos Alonso was the only one who gave his autograph – to a child whose name was also Alonso.
