A photo posted to social media from the UAE on Thursday appears to show the former sponsor of Barcelona football club – Qatar Airways – covered up with white paint, effectively banning the word “Qatar” from public view.
Social media users claim the photo was taken at an unspecified mall in the UAE, and shows Barcelona players Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suarez on an advertisement billboard with the club’s former sponsor censored.
In 2011, Barcelona made history when they signed a deal with Qatar Sports Investment, agreeing to put a paid sponsor’s logo on their shirts for the first time in 111 years.
