Barcelona were hit hard by a recent FIFA transfer ban as a result of dealing with under-18 players and their famed La Masia academy. 

Before their match on Saturday against Real Betis, fans made their feelings on FIFA's action loud and clear with a giant banner that read "La Masia - No Es Toca," translated to "La Masia - Don't Touch It." 

 

Seriously, this banner is so embarrassing for so many reasons: pic.twitter.com/4pw0IdTCGF (via @PeriodistasAnon)
