Every single Pumas player was desperate for a picture with Xavi Hernandez, he did the same pose over and over again

Xavi Hernandez was bombarded with picture requests from UNAM Pumas players at the Nou Camp on Sunday.

Barcelona hosted the Mexican outfit in their annual Joan Gamper trophy fixture and recorded a resounding 6-0 victory.

Pedri bagged a brace, while Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong all on target.


Barcelona legend Dani Alves, one of the most successful players in football history, was given a special send-off by the Blaugrana after the game after playing for the visitors.

But another great moment from the contest saw Pumas players come up to Barca manager Xavi and ask him for a picture.

The club posted a video of four different players asking Xavi for a photo on the touchline and the Spain icon was more than happy to oblige.

They posted the clip with the caption "Everyone wants a picture with Xavi" but in the replies, plenty joked about the club charging players for the snaps given their financial predicament.

The scenes were similar to a situation in June where every Argentina player was desperate to get a picture with Lionel Messi and the Finalissima trophy after the triumph over Italy at Wembley.

The official Copa America Twitter account posted a video of Messi's many picture requests in the Argentina celebrations.


Teammates like Paulo Dybala, Juan Foyth and Nicolas Otamendi all wanted that all-important snap to show their grandkids in the future.

And some officials also simply had to get a picture with the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Messi must be used to it by now. Last year, Barcelona players all wanted a picture with him following the Copa Del Rey final win over Athletic Bilbao in Seville.
