‘Liability’ - Barcelona fans tear into one player despite win over Osasuna

Supporters of Spanish giants Barcelona have taken to social media in numbers on Sunday evening, to make their frustrations with one member of Xavi Hernandez’s squad very much known.

Barca, for those not aware, marked their return to action a short time ago.

Amid ongoing efforts to hunt down Clasico rivals Real Madrid atop the La Liga table, the Blaugrana made the trip to Pamplona, for a meeting with Osasuna.

And, when all was said and done, make it three wins from four to open the campaign is precisely what the evening’s visitors went on to do.

After Jules Kounde’s opener was cancelled out by Chimy Avila 15 minutes from time, Barca looked in serious danger of dropping another two points.

A late penalty award, though, afforded Xavi and co. a golden opportunity to retake the lead, with Robert Lewandowski having made no mistake in slotting home from 12 yards, in the process rounding out the scoring at El Sadar.

As alluded to above, though, whilst Barcelona, in the end, got the job done on Sunday, many of a Blaugrana persuasion were nevertheless evidently left underwhelmed.

Such fans made clear as much across social media, in taking aim at several members of the club’s under-performing squad.

Amidst such criticisms, though, one man was singled out for more widespread condemnation than any other.

The player in question? Sergi Roberto.

Afforded a start on the right of the Catalans’ backline against Osasuna, Roberto struggled to justify his inclusion, before ultimately being hooked on the hour mark.

And the online backlash to his showing has since been as swift as it has ruthless, with just some of the highlights from Twitter showcased below:
