According to AS, Barcelona stars Arthur Melo and Riqui Puig both decided to like the Catalan outfit’s official Instagram post that announced Ernesto Valverde’s sacking.
Screenshots confirm the actions of the Barcelona midfielders, this is certain to spark debate and regardless of what the players thought about Valverde, this seems to be a very disrespectful act.
Take a look at the pair’s reaction to Valverde’s departure below:
Los únicos jugadores que le han dado me gusta a la publicación de Valverde en Instagram han sido Riqui Puig y Arthur. No hace falta describirlo. pic.twitter.com/mlJVT96CFp

Quique Setien was appointed as the Blaugrana’s new manager and Puig may get some first-team action under the former Betis boss.
Samuel Marsden has reported that 20-year-old Puig took past in first-team training earlier today, whilst adding that Arthur appears to be closer to a return.
Setién took Barca training for the first time this morning. Arthur did part of the session, Riqui Puig also involved.

Nothing can change the pair’s distasteful activity on social media, but at the least the duo have since come out and rectified their blunders by thanking Valverde.
