The farewell to Pep Guardiola as FCB manager was the most watched video on the FC Barcelona YouTube channel in the month of April. The biggest hit was the musical ‘Gràcies Pep’ , which is a one and a half minute review of the outgoing manager’s time on the Barça bench. In just four days, the video was watched an amazing 1.2 million times.

That is three times the number of the second most watched video of the month, which was precisely the press conference at which Guardiola announced that he would not be staying on as first team manager.

Chelsea, Messi and Afellay

Apart from the manager’s departure, the other subject that attracted massive attention among web users was the semi final against Chelsea. As usual, images of Messi were among the most viewed. These included one about the Argentinian’s solidarity and the fifth anniversary of his unforgettable goal against Getafe .

Another hugely popular video on the Barça YouTube channel was the welcome back for Ibrahim Afellay after six months sidelined through injury.
