Being Barcelona: Spanish giants to copy Liverpool's 'groundbreaking' documentary

Remember 'Being Liverpool'? Get ready for 'Being Barcelona'...

The two words 'Being Liverpool' might just elicit a split response from fans of the club, when they recall last year's behind the scenes look at how the club was run.

There were those who saw it as a stage-managed PR stunt, keen to show the club's positive image around the world and reach new audiences in the US particularly (with it screened by FOX USA).

It had it's cringe-worthy moments such as Brendan Rodgers' famous envelope of doom, along with the way it neatly skipped over the club's deadline day debacle.

But on the other hand, it was novel to see a television series giving us an 'access all areas' pass behind the scenes which so rarely happens in football nowadays at any level.

After all, on what other tv show could you have caught Luis Suarez starring in a game of Monopoly?

It certainly impressed some, and the American television network behind the series have clearly been pushing for another, with a different club this time - Barcelona.

Barcelona's secretary and board spokesperson Toni Freixa revealed late this afternoon in a press conference that the club have reached an agreement with FOX to film a six-part documentary similar to Liverpool's.

It promises to be a fascinating watch - Will Neymar and Messi talk to each other behind the scenes? What does Cesc Fabregas put in his hair? Will Pepe Reina make his second appearance on the channel in successive years.
