Barcelona Troll Gareth Bale With 'Golf Swing Celebration' Social Media Post Before Deleting

Barcelona's official Twitter account posted a cheeky dig at Gareth Bale and his golfing exploits after a memorable win against Granada.

The Catalan giants produced an impressive comeback in the Cope del Rey quarter-final clash, coming back from 2-0 down to win 5-3 in extra time.

Ronald Koeman's side were 2-0 down after 88 minutes after former Premier League duo Kenedy and Roberto Soldado gave Granada a deserved lead.

But goals from Jordi Alba (2), Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann (2) sent Barca through.


It was that man Griezmann who led the celebrations in extra-time by imitating a golf swing alongside teammate Riqui Puig; a moment Barcelona later posted about on social media.

They wrote: 'Barca. Comeback. Golf. In that order.' in reference to Gareth Bale's famous 'Wales, Golf, Madrid' flag produced after his national team secured qualification for Euro 2020.

The Catalan club quickly deleted the post but many reacted to the dig.





The 'Wales. Golf. Madrid,' was in reference to a quote by former Los Blancos player Predrag Mijatovic.

Speaking on Cadena Ser the former striker said: "To have someone like that at the club, who they say isn't integrated and has other, more important worries than his own team and his club... the first thing he thinks about is Wales, then golf and after that, Real Madrid.

"I haven't spoken to him but that's how he comes across."

Thoughts on Barcelona's now-deleted post?
