FC Barcelona is reforming itself as it targets a return to the top table next season. With numerous signings and a dream squad, the Catalan club is now at home after having toured the United States, preparation that began with a victory over Real Madrid in the Clásico, and which has ended with another victory against the New York Red Bulls.

In this last game, the club that Xavi Hernández is reinvigorating has enjoyed a crowd devoted to it. Some fans among whom is another global superstar, Dwayne Johnson, who stopped by the Red Bull Arena to see Ferrán Torres, Aubameyang and others.
The actor and former wrestler, famously known as ‘The Rock’, enjoyed privileged views at the side of the pitch, where he was able to greet the Barça players one by one to congratulate them, and also for the great role they have played in the United States. The Rock himself and the Blaugrana team have shared some images in the stadium, showing the complicity that the actor feels with the first team players.
