Spartak Moscow is making fun of the next top European club. This time, the first division club from Russia is targeting the financially struggling FC Barcelona.
Spartak Moscow has made fun of FC Barcelona on social media.
Just over a month after the Russian first division team publicly mocked FC Bayern, the top club from Spain is now getting its money’s worth. With a provocative tweet, Moscow presumably reacted to the signing of Robert Lewandowski by the Catalans.
As is well known, he is coming to Barca from FC Bayern for at least 45 million euros. A lot of money for a 33-year-old, and a lot of money for an extremely indebted club.
Spartak wrote on a video showing a completely overwhelmed looking TV character: “We if Barcelona want to buy Moses with imaginary money and a payment plan until 2438.” By (Victor) Moses is meant a Spartak player.
Spartak has also made fun of Bayern before
On Twitter, the Moscow club collected a lot of likes and amused comments.
At the beginning of June, the club made a surprisingly pointed joke against FC Bayern. At that time, the allegedly ridiculous bonus payments offered by Bayern to Liverpool FC for the signing of Sadio Mané were the subject of much mockery.
In the end, however, Bayern laughed. Because they were not only able to sign Mané as hoped and because the “so-called ‘Spartak Moscow clause'”, as sports director Hasan Salihamidzic called it, was ultimately accepted by Liverpool.
