A youth player Sergi Guardiola was sacked just hours after he was signed by Barcelona because of an old tweet.

Guardiola was signed from AD Alcoron but was sacked after old tweets by him emerged where he was supporting Real Madrid during an El Clasico game.

"I wouldn't have Messi in my team; he spoils the way the team plays,” the player tweet.

"Up Real Madrid, and the hell with Catalonia" and "Today to hell with Catalonia and up Real Madrid".

Though it has been deleted, the tweets were discovered by the club who decided to sack him just hours after he was signed.

“Football Club Barcelona have subsequently announced the cancellation of Sergi Guardiola's contract,” the club said.
