Watch: Barcelona Forced To Apologise After Halloween Prank Goes Wrong

They may be Messi-less but with Neymar and Suarez picking up the slack, Barcelona have barely missed a beat over the past month or so. One Saturday, a goal each from Barca's star forwards saw them come out on top against Getafe in a rather routine 2-0 win to put them joint top of La Liga with Real Madrid.

Given the day that was in it, the Barca stars decide to celebrate by donning some costumes and running around Getafe's Coliseum Alfonso Perez for the fun of it.


The intention was, supposedly, to interrupt Luis Enrique's press conference but it seems Pique, Suarez and co. took a wrong turn and burst into Getafe forward Victor Rodriguez's press conference.

Having just been defeated 2-0, it's fair to say that Rodriguez was less than pleased with the interruption as the Barca players awkwardly tried to make their way out of the room.


It seems the 'prank' has not gone down well in Spain as the club have since released the following, hilariously stern, statement in relation to the incident.

In no case was it our intention to offend and/or hurt any member of Getafe's team. Our emergence in the post-game interview area during Victor Rodriguez's press conference was an unfortunate and involuntary accident.

We would like to personally apologise to him, as well as to express our respect for him.

The images recorded demonstrate that one of the players who was participating said, 'Where are we going? We went the wrong way.'

The team is aware of the responsibility that comes with being a player for FC Barcelona and would like to apologise to anyone who may have been offended, especially Getafe's players and supporters.

We have an unwavering commitment as well to the members and supporters of FC Barcelona, who have to be able to feel proud of the team, both on and off the field.

That'll teach them.
