Justin Bieber shows off some serious soccer skills as he trains with FC Barcelona


Bend it like Bieber: Justin Bieber trained yesterday with FC Barcelona at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, the official training ground for the Catalan club

He's already a favourite of David Beckham and family - and now Justin Bieber has showed just how much he loves the world of football.

Earlier this week, the teen megastar was spotted playing against some local players in a Barcelona FC kit in Madrid as he took some time out from his world tour.

But today, he fulfilled many a footie fan's dream when he trained with actual FC Barcelona players.

Not only that, but the 17-year-old was praised on the official FC Barcelona website, with the club's official website reporting Justin showed 'surprisingly decent skills with his left foot.'

Justin was allowed to don the team's mint green second strip and kick about with FC Barcelona at their official training ground at Ciutat Esportiva at the Joan Gamper sports complex near the city.

Barça's official website said that the star turned up for training after selling out Barcelona's Palau Sant Jordi on Wednesday - despite it being on the same day as Barça v Shakhtar.

After admitting he he is a fan of the team, he then played with Thiago Alcântara, striker Bojan Krkic, Benja Martínez, Andreu Fontàs against goalkeeper Rubén Miño.

Bieber clearly played football growing up in Canada and proved that not only does he have the world at his feet, he's proved he's pretty nifty using them on a football too.

As reported by MailOnline earlier this week, the Bieber-Beckham fanclub is mutual, with Victoria earlier posting up a cardboard cut-out of the star on a sunlounger next to her husband.

It came days after David revealed their son Romeo asked if they could call their new baby after him.

Beckham, whose wife Victoria is pregnant with their fourth child, was speaking to American chat show host Jimmy Kimmel when he shared the story.

He added that when they told Romeo that he was going to have a sister, and not another a brother, the eight-year-old then asked if they could call her Justine Bieber instead.
