Justin Bieber has got (beautiful) game.
The pop singer visited FC Barcelona’s practice facility Monday, as his “Purpose World Tour” winds through the city on the Mediterranean Sea. However, instead of merely smiling for the club’s cameras, Bieber laced up his cleats and enjoyed a kick-around with Barcelona players Neymar and Rafinha.
Bieber’s technical skills, particularly with his left foot, are much more advanced than we would have thought. The 22-year-old also could be a half-decent goalkeeper if he sets his mind to the craft.
Bieber also took the opportunity to meet Neymar’s attacking partners, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
Bieber’s afternoon with Barcelona makes him the envy of soccer fans everywhere (except perhaps in Madrid) but also gives the haters one more reason to hate.
We’ll soon learn whether Bieber boosted Neymar and Co, as Barcelona will visit Celtic FC on Wednesday in Glasgow, Scotland in the UEFA Champions League.
