Night Out: Barcelona Boys At Cirque Du Soleil


On Friday eve, a few of the Barca boys headed out for some circus fun/frolics at the opening night of Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Varekai’ in Barcelona.

As you can see, Carles Puyol brought along his new gal, Malena Costa, while Xavi sported a sweater vest.

Also present were Leo Messi and his girlfriend, Antonella, who nearly had the end of their evening at the circus ruined by an over eager reporter. Luckily, Antonella’s hair made it out unscathed.

    ugh, i have been away from kickette for tooo looong…i hate exams

    yay!its xavi on kickette!! i like it!
    damn he looks good…so so does pedro.

    antonella is perfect, for some reason she kinda reminds me of a brunette Shakira ..it is a weird fantasy of mine that if i cant get a spanish footballer, i would love to see shakira with one..maybe pique (but hes MINE!)..btw its the last spain nt game of the whole year (sobs)

  2. vote for pedro!!! and omg leo… oh antonella, curse you for living the life i was meant to live… and growing the locks i was meant to have!!!

  3. Noelle says:

    Antonella is so hot! Lucky Messi! I may be in the minority here but I don't think he's much of a looker.. No one's disputing he's a great footballer though. And Malena could do better than Puyol I reckon. Just my opinion ladies!

  4. Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

    And I'm so sorry that I lured you into that. It's not that I do not understand brotherly love (I'm very close to my own family) it's just that in this case it seems that Lio is supporting them and they just go for a ride on his expense. It has also been implied from many other sources, so it's not just me who is getting this idea. But hey, what do I know? I just cant resist my cynical impulses sometimes :) . I simply love Lio and wish him and his family the very best.

  5. Sandraloll says:

    Mannn ..antonella is hot but dammm I’m jelouse !!! Ahhhhhhhh wa u Gona do !! Lol

  6. mcgee says:

    hahaha Xavi looks sooo damn adorable in that sweater vest…hes just too cute

  7. ela says:

    kickette i love u i really do….but why did u choose this picture of messi, there are many other better pictures…and please more barca boys pictures please….

  8. orangerie says:

    more barca love on kickette! i love it, thanks you guys!

  9. orangerie says:

    "able to weave around her as he does with defenders on the pitch" — LOL! nice one!

  10. ela says:

    sorry that link is not working so try this one….

  11. Marie says:

    XAVI!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    everytime i see the name Xavi in kickette i get over excited…..
    (by the way xavi, why are you wearing a tag????)

  12. a kickette lurker says:

    Girls, girls, it's a GOOD thing Xavi is single. (maybe it's because he hasn't met me yet. LOL!) And yes he does clean up well… he looks good when he's not so intense (as in his normal look on the pitch). check this out http://larojacampeones.tumblr.com/post/1307439097… –> according to one of my friends it's a smile that can ripen mangoes….

    • Dru says:

      YES. Normally he's so into the game, you feel like he doesn't want to be into anything else or anyone else, but OH MY that smile wouldn't just ripen mangoes, it'd bring them falling out of the tree.

  13. Lola says:

    I'm confused, us Xavi gay or asexual? He never is shown to be dating anyone…

    • ninz says:

      ASEXUAL?? LOL girl, are you even sure of that term?? Hahahahahaha

    • jamtart heart says:

      Nope, he just magically escapes the attention some of his teammates get. The occasional picture of him with a girlfriend turns up, but not often.

    • Marie says:

      he recently broke up with his gf….. he once said that his obsession with football makes havin a relationship very difficult,,,(of course that is because he doesn't know me……..yet!!!!)

    • Lola says:

      Lol
      a·sex·u·al (-sksh-l)
      adj.
      1. Having no evident sex or sex organs; sexless.
      2. Relating to, produced by, or involving reproduction that occurs without the union of male and female gametes, as in binary fission or budding.
      3. Lacking interest in or desire for sex.

      I meant the third one… but yeah, it's just that he's never pictured with girls…or maybe he's just looking for the right one?

  14. Andrea says:

    I am so excited to see Xavi on kickette; we definitely don’t see enough of him.

  15. Andrea says:

    Exactly what I was thinking.

  16. Rachel S says:

    I never thought I'd say this, but Xavi is looking FINE! I feel bad, I never really paid him much attention but now I can see the appeal in him!

  17. oh pedro needs to get a suit his size,( im sorry im just hating im a madrid fan) but its obvious that madridistas have better taste except cristiano and lass and serg sometimes

    • ela says:

      sorry but i completely disagree…i love the barca boys in their simple yet trendy look…the jense and tshirt look they sport most of the time more than does it for me…although i agree pedro here needs adjustment..

    • orangerie says:

      three words for you girl — IKER and NO HATING!

      it's a lovely post, let's not ruin it

  18. first thing that came to my mind seeing the first picture = THIRD WHEEL !!!!!!!!!!!!!! where's your wag xavi

  19. Marie says:

    I really dont think that Puyol and that girl are a match. They look so mis match. She is like 11 or 12 years younger than him and for some reason she just doesnt seem to much into him, she might be with him now cause of the fame and perks that come from being a WAG. It seems just like a fling.

    • jamtart heart says:

      If the recent interview he did with Marie Claire Espana is any indication, I think Puyol's having a good time these days and enjoying himself after a few years of being not as happy as he might have been; no harm, no foul. She has a thing for older men, I think, but I don't think it means she's any less genuine–she just has good taste in men, haha. If they can make it work, good for them; she certainly seems to make him happy.

      • Dru says:

        Let him have a fling if he wants one- as long as things are clear between them and he's happy, does it matter? It's not even as if a 10-year age gap is THAT big a deal to a 21/22-year-old model, he's only 32 after all.

    • ela says:

      i dont think she is that young, she looks 24 or 25 and he is 32…plus i think he is gorgeous and such a man and if what i read is right he has a heart made of gold…who wouldnt want to be with him…plus his eyes are more beautiful than sunset if you can see them upclose…

      • Pam says:

        She looks young and she is young, she is 21, almost 22. Born Nov 11, 1988. Anyways, I dont like them together, him and I would make a much better match. If I only I could get my hands on that man and I would never let him go!! Ay mi capitan!

        • LosAngeleno says:

          She might be perfectly nice (she's certainly gorgeous) but she just looks a little too serious or sullen here (perhaps it's a model pose thing). If I were there with him, I'd have a big huge grin on my face, sort of like Geri would. In fact, I am sort of a female Pique: a tall, blond, good-natured jokester. So naturally, he really belongs with me. Plus, I'd make sure the whole damn team was outfitted with decent jeans (solid dark rinse, no holes).

  20. pam says:

    Is Messi living with his girl now ??

  21. SoccerLoverrrr says:

    Xavi is soo fineeeeee!! and messi's girlfraan is a hottieeeeeeeeeeee!

  22. Leya_S says:

    couldn't have said it better myself!

  23. super m says:

    Pedro has to work the smirk because he can't open his mouth and show his horrid teeth! ;o)

    • @DebStimson says:

      I've always wondered why athletes making so much money don't get braces, especially Ronaldinho. I have noticed that dear Marcelo has been sporting braces and I didn't even remember his teeth being bad?

      • super m says:

        Oh my gosh, me too! It's like you have millions and millions of dollars, but don't fix your teeth? Maybe it's a cultural thing?

      • ela says:

        he IS fixing his teeth, i read several places that he is going to the dentist regularly and he is even missing practice becoz of it…if you look at new pics of him they look better than before…

  24. aps says:

    -Xavi looks really nice.
    -Pedro would look good if he ditched that ill-fitted blazer.
    -Finally more pics of Messi and Antonella. I just love them.

  25. Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

    Thanks! I understand a bit but I'm definitely not fluent.

  26. Anonym says:

    Ok some of you may hate me after reading this comment. But for me it looks like Carles' girlfriend is just a girl who wants a bit attention…

    • caitanya says:

      anonym, i agree with you

    • ela says:

      i disagree but i dont hate you…i think she looks cute…but she better not break carles's heart…his heart has already been broken one too many times…

      • Dru says:

        Oh I think it's just a fling of sorts and he's having a bit of fun- no risk of broken hearts, hopefully.

  27. ela says:

    can i have me one barca boy plsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss?

  28. Pique_Xavi says:

    I LOOOOOOOVE Xavi and his harry potter style sweater!!!! I love that this men hangout together and with their gals and don't have to get drunk and crazy to have a good time, well not all the time, lol. Messi and Anto are adorable together, and some rumors says they will get married by the end of this year. Can you imagine little Messis running around. By the way there were pics of Messi being followed by a female reporter and Messi seemed to answered her questions while trying to leave her behind but she insisted and looked tired trying to keep up with him. I'm going to try to convince Pique to bring Xavi to the Vegas to see Cirque du Soleil so I can stalk them together…. oh darn, I just woke up and I was dreaming I was talking with Pique :)

    • Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

      Omg, baby Messis would be fantastic! And I'm glad that he has ditched his brothers and is going out with Antonella instead. Before you coldn't see a picture of Lio without is brothers stalking him. I don't know but I got the feeling that they were capitalizing on him.

      And i can't wait until the day when little Xavis will see the light of day. I think that would do me in. :)

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Really? I didn't know that about Messi's brothers but now that you mention it in last years awards Xavi took his family and his then gf and Messi was with one of his brothers. Found that a little weird because him and Anto have been together forever. Yes, their little ones will be adorable, beautiful and with a head full of gorgeous hair.

        As for Xavi's babies… depends who has the strong genes, him or his future wife, but if I think Xavi has some strong genes like his dad and that kid if he is anything like Xavi will be beautiful. I have 4 ballers who I can't wait to see their offspring and besides Xavi, Messi, there Pique and Memo Ochoa. But I really would love to see Messi and Xavi with little girls because something tells me boys will be loved but their little girls will be the ones who steal their hearts.

    • Sil says:

      Hi, Xavi, I'm shorter than you! Our babies will be so small and cute!

      And the "harry potter sweater" was genious, girl!!!

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Thanks :) Xavi and I have many things in common but clothes is one of the bigges… we kinda like nerdy but trendy, lol. That's what my sister call it. I love sweaters and sweater vests don't know why but I do, lol.

        But I think I'm way shorter and short babies are so damn adorable!!! Just like Xavi swimming in his little tyke uniforms.

        • ela says:

          LOVE your analysis and love your passion for the barca boys…little messi is my dream…i was just hoping he wld have those little messi's with me :( ….ahhhhhhhhh wat the hell i like antonela, she looks so cool and down to earth…perfect for our messi and his little ones…but u cant blame me for dreaming…

          as for messi's brothers and family i disagree with you there…i think he comes from a place where families are really close, and so it is normal (i know bcoz i come from such a place too) plus being the kid who had to stay alone most of his life…his family kept an eye on him to make sure he stays on the right path and not go into drugs, girls etc like what happens to many other footballers and i think they did a good job, one of messi's best characters is his personality and discipline and they add to his genius on the pitch..plus i think he welcomed their attention coz he loves them so much and wld like to be with them…i can really relate to the whole situation…anyhow i love your comments and your name…:)

    • Emme says:

      Oh my goodness!! Xavi finally featured!!!! I am so happy for you!

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Oh my goodness thanks :) … But I had already seen this before it was posted here. I'm still happy to see him here though. He actually loves this and attends every year, probably some of the few things he actually prefers over catching up on the rest of the highlights regarding football, lol. I kept help to wonder if that thing around his neck is a backstage pass because Puyi and his gal aren't wearing one but some others are. I've never been to this type even just outside of one in Vegas but because I preferred the lion show didn't go see the human performance, lol. Seems fun though.

  29. BarceLisa says:

    looks like my Barca boys have been raiding Iker's closet. Lol everytime I think of Cirque Du Soleil I think of this joke by Kathy Griffin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LngYYrrs2UM

  30. N says:

    WAGs with good hair, all good (though I'm still goggling at the length and glossiness of Antonella's, and is Malena taller than Puyi or is she wearing heeled trainers?)

    But what really catches my eye here is how nicely Xavi cleans up. He looks like a college boy here, though I wouldn't feel like a perv for staring at him, haha.

  31. I meant to type 1.69 m. If he were 1.9 m, he would be the giant, not the flea!

  32. blitzenTO says:

    And WOW! When did Pedro get so hot? Our little baby baller is all grown up!

  33. blitzenTO says:

    Poor Xavi having no one to go with. :( Boy needs a nice, independent, footie-obsessed girlfriend who doesn't mind staying in and watching the game highlights with her man instead of partying…..can someone let him know I'm available? kthanks! :)

    • Summer says:

      In Italy we usually say "Meglio soli che male accompagnati". It means that it's better to be alone that to stay with the wrong person!!

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Mejor solos que mal acompanado!!! That's ours Mexican style. That's were I am right now and sadly for me my family (aunts and some cousins) think its better to be with someone even if there isn't much to be happy about than to be alone. I'm sure Xavi's family don't pressure him. But I agree, I brokeup my relationship because there was no future but my family just sees females alone and they panic! LOL

    • Pique_Xavi says:

      If I see him I'll let him know there are two of us. But don't you prefer him single for a while? I mean if its not you or me…. Don't you just love his harry potter style sweater? But I love how Puyi unlike many other men show Xavi some loving when he's around his girl. By the way, he goes to this even every year so if you're ever near one go you might just find him, lol. I know what you're thinking, I'm so obsess but somehow I don't mind it one bit :)

  34. peppy says:

    Antonella is so precious. Lover her hair!

  35. Missy Manchester says:

    Who has the best hair?

    A. Malena?
    B. Antonella?
    C. Carles?

  36. Simone says:

    Why is Antonella always wearing sneakers. She is so nice trying not to look taller than her man and pedro I'm really starting to like him

  37. ommggg
    antonella is soo freaking gorgeous.
    good for messi :)

  38. Mrs Puyol says:

    I hate to say it, but Puyis girl looks cool! Hate her shoes, though.

    • Thea says:

      I dunno – she's very different from Anges…….not sure how long she'll stay!

      • Mrs Puyol says:

        I know. But in this photo she looks different from how she looks in others. Usually she looks a little bit like a young golddigger. I'm torn. He deserves someone good, captain Braveheart!

        • ela says:

          mrs. puyol i love your name and i know wat u mean…captain braveheart shldnt have his heart broken…

  39. blue_verry says:

    Love to see my favorite players together off the pitch and outside the dressing room. That reporter doesn't hold a candle to Antonella.

  40. Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

    LOL, in the last photo Lio looks like a creepy stalker! And could Xavi be more cute?! I want to eat him all up!
