A UNIVERSITY languages department has joined forces with one of the world’s greatest football clubs.

The University of Sheffield’s Department of Hispanic Studies linked up with FC Barcelona for a public lecture on how the club nurtures its young players. Around 100 people turned out to hear Ramon Pont Amenós, vice president of the FC Barcelona Foundation, speak.
