Barcelona were eyeing up an impromptu workout on the National Mall earlier today, only to have their little scheme nixed by the U.S Park Police – we’ll let Xavi pick up the yarn:

“Security said you couldn’t have a group of more than 10 or 15 there. We wanted to loosen up a little, stretch – but, given that the White House was near, it was just normal security, nothing more.”

Back to the bus with you!

Looks like Barca aren’t being shown quite the same levels of preferential treatment by the good folk of Washington DC than certain other teams we hasten to mention.

Ahem *free cookies* ahem.
