Picture: A Barcelona banner of Sandro Rosell as Pinocchio was seized by Nou Camp security

Sandro Rosell came under attack during Barcelona’s home match against Deportivo on Saturday night.

Over the past few days rumours have been sweeping through Barcelona claiming that Sandro Rosell made underground pacts with certain groups of Barcelona ultras in order to win club’s presidential election back in 201o.

The accusations come as a public relations blow for Rosell who had previously gone on the record to deny the existence of any such under-the-table deals.

With that as the background, there was a certain degree of a pushback at the Nou Camp on Saturday night, specifically with one banner cartoonishly depicting Sandro Rosell as Pinocchio.

According to reports, the banner was seized by Nou Camp security during the Depor game.
