Don’t put your favourite La Liga club above the Royal family

A Moroccan schoolboy who supports Barcelona has been jailed for insulting the country’s Royal family. Yassine Belassal altered the phrase “God, The Nation, The King” on the school blackboard so that it instead read “God, The Nation, Barcelona”.

Barcelona has appointed a lawyer to see if it can help the 18-year-old to be released from prison. God save our gracious Accrington Stanley!
