Barcelona star confronts angry fans who climbed his car and blocked him from going home

  • Samuel Umtiti was left irritated after fans blocked and climbed onto his car as he was leaving training
  • The 28-year-old French footballer has fallen out of favour at Barcelona and could leave the club soon
  • A video on December 1 showed Umtiti confronting fans who were keen on winding him up as he was leaving the training ground

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti was recently forced to confront fans after a nasty incident at the club’s training grounds.

Umtiti, whose Barcelona career is on the verge of an unfortunate end, was among the Barca players who were mobbed by fans on Wednesday, December 1, as they left training.

The French superstar was attempting to leave training when a group of five fans stepped in front of his swanky cars and started jumping and chanting.

At some point, one of the fans climbed onto the car, and this seemed to trigger Umtiti, who did a fake acceleration to try to scare the fans out of the way.

Eventually, he angrily sped off for a few yards before stepping out of the vehicle to confront the fans behind him.

In the bizarre incident fully caught by one of the fans on video, Umtiti strides towards them and in clear agitation, asks:

“Do you pay for the car? Why do you mess around? Do you know what respect is?”

The bizarre exchange saw some of the fans ask for his signature, while others try to play down the incident by asking for photos.

The video ends with Umtiti storming back to his car, with the fans, clearly ungovernable at this point, following him still.

Frozen

Despite his contract running until 2023, Umtiti is likely to leave Barcelona sooner as he is not part of new manager Xavi’s plans.

Umtiti fell out of favour with Barcelona fans after it emerged he was among the players who rejected a pay cut at the height of the club’s financial woes.

After an eye-opening first four weeks in charge characterized by mixed fortunes, Conte has been made aware of the daunting task ahead of him.

Only last week, the Italian said the club’s level “was not high” after a shock defeat in the Europa Conference League to minions NS Mura.

“Biggest challenge, yes. But as I said in Mura, I’m not scared about this,” Conte said ahead of a tricky Premier League fixture against Brentford on Thursday, December 2.

“I have a lot of enthusiasm. When I arrive here, I enjoy the situation. I enjoy to work with the players, I enjoy to speak with the club, I enjoy creating a good base. Now the most important thing is this – to create a good base and then to build something important.

When Conte won the Premier League with Chelsea, Tottenham, under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, were his closest rivals who finished second.

“We need a bit of time but I’m sure we can improve a lot and give satisfaction to our fans. But this is a big challenge for me. This is a big challenge for the club. This is a big challenge for the players. For everybody.”
