The money collected is usually used, when the season allows, for a group lunch or dinner, but nobody likes to scratch their pockets. The first that could be forced to contribute something to that ‘piggy bank’ is Ousmane Dembélé, who, according to ESPN journalist Jordi Blanco, arrived three minutes late this morning at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despí.

It is only three minutes, nothing serious, but enough to inaugurate the fines, provided that he had not warned before alleging some reason of force majeure.
According to journalist Alex Pintanel, from Gol, Xavi was the first to arrive at 7.52 am, while Ansu Fati was the first player.
