Barca President Sandro Rossal Deems Arsenal Signing 16 Year Old Jon Toral ‘Immortal’

As I’m sure you’ve all heard Arsenal have robbed yet another player from the world famous Barcelona La Masia academy. This time it was 16 year-old Jon Toral who Arsenal got their paws on and it left Barcelona president Sandro Rossal with quite a bit to say.

In an interview with Catalan television Rossal said that:

“We told the Arsenal directors that we knew they were after Toral and we told them we didn’t like it – as any president would have said. Legally they have done nothing wrong but it’s a little immoral.”


Its bloody ironic how Rossal has the cheek to say that about Arsenal. Let’s remember that Barca snap up endless amounts of players when they’re much younger. Lionel Messi, for example joined the La Masia academy at just 10.

Can someone smell a rat?

About Dylan O'Neill

Football mad Irish 20-year-old. Living in Dublin so I've had a keen interest in League of Ireland for the last 2-3 years and used to write about it on offtheupright.blogspot.com, focusing mainly on UCD's limited fortunes as well as the Irish national team. I started to merge this interest with gambling two years ago to moderate success so have continued to do so since! View all posts by Dylan O'Neill
