SUPPORTERS of Spanish minnows Ceuta attacked Barcelona's team bus as the team arrived in Morroco for tonight s Copa del Rey clash against the Spanish minnows.
A Ceuta fan hurled a large stone at the Barca coach that was carrying the team to their hotel, and as a consequence smashed one of the windows.
Several pieces of broken glass landed on Portuguese winger Simao Sambrosa, but luckily without any severe consequences.
Police reported that there were about 1500 fans at the arrival point, all waiting for to catch a glimpse of the Spanish giants. Police have not caught the culprit who threw the stone, but obviously Barca were far from happy about their welcome in Ceuta.
The Catalan club's coach, Lorenzo Serra Ferrer, who had previously agreed to do a press conference on his arrival, opted not to do it, due the incident that occurred.
