  • Barcelona president Joan Laporta is in the news for the wrong reasons
  • Photos of him socializing with ladies have ignited discussions on social media
  • Meanwhile, the Catalan giants are preparing to face a host of top European clubs in their pre-season games

Joan Laporta's reputation continues to be marred by controversy, as pictures of the Barcelona president socializing with women have sparked a major uproar on social media.

This controversy follows the cancellation of Barcelona's pre-season game against Juventus due to a viral gastroenteritis outbreak among the Spanish team.

According to Cronicaglobal, Laporta hosted a US Party attended by prominent businessmen and influential individuals from Los Angeles and other cities in California.

The event took place at the Agua Viva restaurant, situated in the Conrad Hotel, and was organized to welcome representatives from North American companies sponsoring the club.

Despite Laporta's good intentions, the images from the party have portrayed a negative impression of the gathering.

One particular photo, which has gone viral and was spotted by Sports Brief, captures Laporta in the company of ladies who seemed to be quite close to the high-ranking football executive.

However, his club, Barcelona, is gearing up to take on Arsenal, Real Madrid, and AC Milan in a tightly-packed and high-profile pre-season fixture schedule, per GOAL.

In a similar publication, Sports Brief reported that Dele Alli’s fall from grace is quite spectacular, and as details continue to emerge regarding his lifestyle, it becomes more apparent why the former Tottenham man is struggling on the pitch.

A photo has emerged of the midfielder alongside several friends in bed, which further brings to light his partying lifestyle and its possible detriment on his performance on the pitch.

Barca, Juventus friendly cancelled

In a previous publication, Sports Brief reported that Barcelona's friendly match against Juventus in San Francisco on Saturday has been cancelled after an outbreak of viral gastroenteritis among the Spanish team.

The game at the 68,500 capacity Levi's Stadium, home of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers, is part of the Soccer Champions Tour, featuring six top European clubs, and had been expected to draw a large crowd.

Barca are scheduled to play against Premier League club Arsenal on Wednesday at SoFi Stadium -- home of the NFL's Rams -- in Los Angeles.
