MLS made an embarrassing gaffe when confirming Sergio Busquets arrival at Inter Miami as they posted a photo of his ex-Spain team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa.
- MLS make huge gaffe in Busquets announcement
- Alvaro Arbeloa photo used by mistake
- Busquets has joined Inter Miami until 2025
WHAT HAPPENED? Instead of tweeting a photo of former Barcelona man Busquets, the official MLS Twitter account accidently posted a photo of Arbeloa kissing the World Cup trophy in 2010. The original post was eventually deleted and replaced with one of Busquets from Spain’s glorious night in South Africa, but naturally, social media users jumped on the incident.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Following former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi to Miami, Busquets is one of the greatest players to make the move to MLS. However, that didn’t stop him from being mistaken for his former international team-mate in an error that the league might find difficult to live down.
