Barcelona players left star-struck after Justin Bieber's training ground visit

Barcelona: Even Barcelona's stellar cast of millionaires were star-struck on Monday by a visit from Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber to the Spanish champions training ground.

Bieber, who is set to perform in Barcelona on Tuesday, was photographed with Barca's star strike triumvirate of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

The 22-year-old also showed off his skills on the pitch with a series of left-footed finishes Messi would be proud of in a kick around with Neymar and midfielder Rafinha.

"Impossible to dribble this defender... @justinbieber," Neymar posted to his 26 million Twitter followers with a photo of the Brazilian dispossessing Bieber.

 

 

Hundreds of Beliebers -- as Bieber's dedicated fan base are known  -- have queued for up to a month outside Madrid's Palacio de Deportes where Bieber will perform on Wednesday just to get as close as possible to their idol when the gates finally open.

However, even a social media phenom such as Bieber can't compare to Messi's numbers.

Bieber's 77 million Facebook likes falls 10 million behind five-time World Player of the Year Messi's tally.
