In Barcelona’s game against Getafe at the Nou Camp, one spectactor sat in the crowd wearing a Real Madrid shirt. This, understandably, angered Barcelona supporters. They first shouted their resentment, to which the supporter reacted by wearing his jacket, thus covering the Real shirt. But the Barca fans weren’t satisfied, one even came over and shoved him. As a result, the security & stewards that had stepped him escorted the fan out safely.
Now the question here is, who is at fault? Firstly, there is a big rivalry between the two clubs, and the two cities. The region of Catalonia has long been embroiled in a political war with the country of Spain as well and thus even the slightest action to provoke that could go out of hand.
Having said that, the fan did nothing to provoke the supporters as he probably intended some friendly banter. It’s possible that he didn’t understand the situation or it’s seriousness, away from a footballing perspective. And even from a footballing point of view, despite having paid for a ticket, it’s just ‘wrong’ to wear a rivals shirt and sit among the home fans for a game where your club isn’t even involved.
