No club’s training videos are watched more than those of Barcelona. Practice highlight videos are for Barća what Among Us streams are for every wannabe Twitch star right now: easy clicks.
Even with all of the club’s top players out on international duty (no Lionel Messi), Barcelona posted another training video to YouTube this week that’s received more than 260,000 views in 24 hours. All to watch what basically amounted to a USMNT practice.
When Jack Charlton passed back in July at the age of 85, the English footballer and manager left behind one of the most towering legacies in the history of the game.
A legendary one-club man who represented Leeds United over 600 times while winning the 1968-69 First Division and the 1971-72 FA Cup, Charlton was also capped 35 times by England and played a massive role in his country’s 1966 World Cup triumph.
Following his loan move from Schalke to Juventus, the profile of USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie went global. The 22-year-old Texan has already been capped 19 times and scored six goals for his country, but playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Giorgio Chiellini and Paulo Dybala is a whole different level.
