Rob Gronkowski seems to be enjoying his off-season as he took time out to watch Barcelona demolish Sporting Gijón 6-1 in La Liga, earlier this week.

It was Gronk's first ever football game, despite European teams regularly crossing the Atlantic and visiting NFL stadiums as part of their pre-season rituals.

However, the Patriots tight end claims he's going to have to get to some more games soon, especially after witnessing a master-class from Barca - who were in devastating form at the Nou Camp.

That being said, Gronk should definitely stick to what he knows best, after the video eventually focused on his skills with the ball at his feet...

You have to tip your hat to the 27-year-old as tries his hand at being a goalkeeper, only for him to realise it's rather difficult to catch a ball that's just been kicked at you by Javier Mascherano.

Gronk was even bold enough to try a few keepy-ups with the Argentina international, only to be equally embarrassed.

Luckily, Gronkowski has two Super Bowl championships to his name, because European football definitely isn't his game.
