We’re sure that Andres Iniesta normally loves the support of his fans, but when a young girl ran onto the field to hug her idol after Barcelona’s loss to Granada on Saturday, we can’t blame him for trying to brush her off.
Her timing was less than ideal: it was during a TV interview. After a loss. To a team that hasn’t defeated your club since 1972.
Come on, kiddo. Not cool.
You have to give her credit for her commitment to the hug. That girl has a death-grip on Iniesta’s waist. But was it worth the inevitable months of being grounded?
