Barcelona have attracted criticism for cropping first-team star Sergi Roberto out of a picture posted online. 

The Catalan side posted an image of Pedri and Ansu Fati on Twitter with the caption: ‘Talent’ on Tuesday.

But the original picture, on the club website, shows Roberto also modelling Barcelona’s training kit alongside the two wonderkids,  

And supporters have questioned why the Spanish giants seemingly airbrushed the player from their social media account. 

One said: ‘It’s funny because in the original photo Sergi Roberto appears.’

Another added: ‘They cropped it,’ with a cry-laughing emoji.

A third asked: ‘Why did you cut Sergi Roberto?’.

Another fan posted: ‘Pobre Sergi Roberto,’ translating from Spanish as ‘Poor Sergi Roberto’. 

A fifth said: ‘Put sergi roberto back on the picture or i report this account,’ with one simply tweeting a grimace emoji in response.

And supporters quickly took to Twitter to question the Catalan side’s decision to cut him out

Roberto has been linked with a move away to ease the club’s massive financial problems.

The 30-year-old only played 12 matches in all competitions last season, and generally acted as backup to Sergino Dest at right-back or as midfield cover.

Barcelona have reportedly asked their four captains – one skipper, three vice-captains, with Roberto one of the latter trio – to take a 50 per cent wage cut in a drastic step aimed to tackle their financial turmoil.
