The internet REALLY loved Barcelona’s official team photo

The meme machine was in full force

A tradition for every football club is to take an official team picture for every season, with the players, coaches and people in charge all lined up with the home kit.

Barcelona kept the tradition rolling for this season with Joan Laporta posing with the squad and Ronald Koeman, but they opened the door for the internet to feast. And the internet always feasts.

Look closely, above Sergiño Dest and besides Martin Braithwaite. Yep, that’s a (poorly) photoshopped Philippe Coutinho, who is currently in Brazil recovering from knee surgery and couldn’t be there in person. The photo doctoring work really isn’t great, so the memes started rolling along.

The internet never forgives.
