FC Barcelona arrived to Japan this Sunday to start their tour in the Japanese country. The 200 fans that gone to see the 'culés' remained without seeing them because they went into the hotel for other entrance
The FC Barcelona already is in Japan to play the Rakuten Cup 2019. The expedition barcelonista arrived to the Japanese country this same Sunday to the 12:15 local hour to contest this 23 July his first friendly in what it goes of pre-season. It will be against Chelsea, a hard rival that will put the very complicated things in this first test to measure the level of the ones of Ernesto Valverde.
After his arrival to the airport, the culés left to Tokyo, that is where will play this meeting in front of the londinenses. There they awaited some 200 people to welcome him all the staff blaugrana to the doors of the hotel where go to lodge. But all these fans remained with win them to see to his big idols, since the footballers did not go in by the main door of the hotel.
As it indicates the daily Ace, the Barcelona club decided to go in to the hotel by a rear entrance that is used to use for load and download of commodities. The majority of Japanese that decided to arrive to the hotel from first hour of the morning with his T-shirts of the Barça and with his posters of players did not see to any footballer and had to go back home without autographs, without photos and without at all.
They were very few the fans that bet in the entrance of load and download, but neither these few attained to achieve that the players culés loaned them a lot of attention. Almost all the footballers that paraded to the hotel did it without stopping and without greeting, although there was two that even stopped to sign autographs with the few fans that there were presents in this entrance.
They were Marc-André ter Stegen and Antoine Griezmann the two players that decided to stop with the fans that shouted his names and that asked them something of attention. The goalkeeper of the German selection is right now one of the big leaders of the changing room and his presence in this type of things is fundamental. Griezmann, by his part, gave smiles and caused a big estruendo between the assistants. Without Leo Messi, the Frenchman is probably the footballer more mediático of the expedition barcelonista and did gala of this in his first apparition.
Decision by security
The decision to go in by the rear door was taken by questions of security. In a lot of countries the fans that give appointment in the door of the hotel do not respect the marked spaces by the security of the club and this can cause serious problems. In Japan does not be used to to happen at all like this, but decided take this decision to avoid unnecessary problems.
