Di Maria social media announcement a hack - Barcelona

Di Maria social media announcement a hack - Barcelona

Indeed, quite out of the blue, fans were shocked to see Barca reveal the signing of Angel Di Maria via their official Twitter account of Tuesday night...

Unsurprisingly, conspiracy theories abounded immediately after the hack, which came shortly after Barcelona announced its plans to sue Neymar for allegedly breaching his contract with the club that he signed previous year. No word on whether the hackers were responsible for Barcelona continually low-balling Liverpool for Philippe Coutinho.

After announcing their intention to sue former player Neymar, only for the player to say he would counter-sue, their social accounts were hacked. "We're working to solve the problem as soon as possible".

Angel Di Maria is also said to be interested in a return to Spain where he will have the opportunity to play with his fellow countryman Lionel Messi.

And sometime after that, FC Barcelona retook possession of the account and apologised to its 23.1 million followers on Twitter.

A few minutes after "announcing" Di Maria, a third post reading "Let's get #FCBHack trending on Twitter" appeared.

The club later released a statement saying: "Our accounts have been hacked tonight. #DiMariaFCB", the hijacked Twitter account wrote in a series of tweets. "Thanks for your patience", the club posted on Wednesday.
