Things at Barcelona haven’t been the most stable as of late. A change in managers took place this year. Multiple injuries and star players using social media to complain about work.

If the typical run of play injury wasn’t enough for you, we have a story. Marca are reporting that Junior Firpo injured his hand during some off the pitch actions. What are the actions you ask? Well, apparently go-karting.

The report says that the go-kart race wherein Firpo hurt his hand featured Junior trying to drift the go-kart in between Marc-André ter Stegen’s legs on a dare. The effort fell short because Firpo flopped and crashed the go-kart before reaching Ter Stegen’s outstretched legs.

I kid,

However, the report is real. Hence why Firpo had a bandage on his hand in two matches against Napoli and Eibar. The effort would of course be against risky activities that the squad are forbidden to do.
