Barcelona president escapes media, ends up in women’s bathroom

One day after selling superstar forward David Villa to Atlético Madrid, FC Barcelona president Sandro Rosell was in no mood to deal with the press hounds at the assembly of the Spanish football federation. So what did Rosell do to get away from the cameras? 

He found refuge in the women's bathroom. 

The video ends too abruptly for us to determine how long Rosell lingered in the wrong washroom before finally re-appearing, but since we're extremely immature, we're satisfied with the initial blunder (assuming it was a blunder). 

I believe you can technically be fined or charged for what Rosell did, but there was obviously no malice. Dude was just trying to get away after trading one of the most popular players in the world. 

At least he handled the media horde better than Toronto mayor Rob Ford during a break in an executive committee meeting earlier this year…
