Life Lessons Through Football: FC Barcelona Learn It The Hard Way Through Ibrahimovic & Chygrynskiy

The season before the last one, FC Barcelona won everything there was to be won, they won the Copa del Ray, the La Liga and the Champions League, but due to Florentino Perez's arrival at Real Madrid and the signings he made, turned the spotlight on Real Madrid.

FC Barcelona didn't like that one bit, they didn't want the spotlight to be taken away from them, so they started critcizing the philosophies of Real Madrid, while making two mega money signings themselves in the form of Dmytro Chygrynskiy & Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Barcelona paid €25 million for Dmytro Chygrynskiy and €45 million plus the star man of last season—Samuel Eto'o (€30-35 million) for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But as fate would have it Chygrynskiy & Ibrahimovic both flopped and fell out of favor at the Catalan club.
FC Barcelona sold Dmytro Chygrynskiy to Shaktar Donetsk for €15 million suffering a loss of €10 million.

And after a long soap-opera in the summer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic finally bid farewell to Barcelona as he is now going to join AC Milan for an year on loan and then AC Milan HAVE to purchase Ibrahimovic for a mere €24 million, with FC Barcelona suffering a loss in the range of €50 million.

FC Barcelona were already covered in the central defender deaprtment, so it didn't cost them to find his replacement but they did spend €45 million on David Villa to replace Zlatan.

Now I agree that David Villa is an amazing signing and is better than Samuel Eto'o, but they have spent nearly €100 million on a player that wasn't even required to be replaced.

Now I agree Real Madrid did a lot of stupid things last season, and two namely being Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben, but Real Madrid weren't the "hexacampeons," Barcelona were, why change a system that wins you things?

Even if Barcelona wins 6 trophies in a season, they'll always be jealous of the club in Madrid that wears the royal whites, and this jealousy has cost them more than €100 million, and it doesn't help when your club has to take loans to pay off the salaries of the players.

Kids, now every experience in life teaches us a lesson, this experience teaches us that jealousy is a bad thing and you should not let what others do determine the things you do.

Okay now enough with the life lessons, lets have a laugh at the expense of our dear rivals! And did you hear, Gerard Pique handed in a request to join AC Milan too, I wonder why.........

Hala Madrid!


  1. hahahahah very nice one. Barcelona were being jelaous with no reason, selling their best man and buying a crap. and Etoo was the ne benefiting cause he goes from winning treble in barca to another treble in Inter Milan. even though etoo did not shine in Real Madrid but lets not forget he was in castilla

  2. Thanks mate. :)

    Never forgot Eto'o was a canterano, but he didn't play well for us and he had no respect for the club.....

  3. I freakin' love the last part!!!

  4. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! I'm loving this! Great article Deepak :D

  5. hahhahahhahaha!

    you know earlier on B/R, I read an article by a Barca fan (I suppose) that criticises Milan for robbing them. C'mon, obviously Barca were more desperate in selling him that Milan were in buying him. What a joke! I wouldn't even pay anywhere above £20m for that guy!

  6. Muchas Gracias, the Ibra-Pique will never get old. :D

  7. Gracias. Just an off topic quesion, do you think I should write on the Champions League draw, I had started it, but didn't have the time to finish it. Do you think it is too late now?

  8. :D

    There's a reason why I don't come to BR more often now, and that sums it up about right, last year I read "Ibra has more potential than Cristiano Ronaldo." Most of the people there are idiots.

  9. Definitely! I'd love to read your point of view. I was actually surprised you didn't write about it.

  10. Hey, Deepak, this is Kaustubh. Check out your Bleacher Report inbox, and reply, please.
