Social media reacts as Paulinho scores again for Barcelona

Social media users have this evening reacted in typically brilliant fashion to news of Paulinho’s goal for Barcelona vs Eibar.

Impressive start

Brazilian midfielder Paulinho arrived at the Camp Nou in a surprise 40 million Euro move from Guangzhou Evergrande this summer, with fans throughout Europe having criticised the decision of the Catalan board to splash out such a hefty sum on the 29-year-old.

However, the Blaugrana remained adamant that Paulinho would prove his doubters wrong, and his start to life with the club has certainly suggested that the South American could have what it takes to do just that.

Having come off the bench to net his side’s winner in a 2-1 victory at Getafe over the weekend, the former Tottenham midfielder was back at it again tonight, adding to an early strike from Lionel Messi to send his side in with a two goal lead at the interval.


Fans have since taken to Twitter in their droves to discuss the Selecao international’s showing, with some of the best roundup below:
