The Editorial Staff

Yousef Salama
Editor

When Yousef started watching football back in 2008 as a 6 year old, his heart fell in love with Barcelona. He didn’t understand much of what was going on, or how much Barcelona struggled during that season. He just knew within himself that he would follow this club as long as he lived.

As he grew older, his love for the game grew bigger, and Yousef started to write about Barça on his personal social media pages, conveying news as well as presenting his own opinions about the game. With time, he wanted his words to reach more culés, and Blaugranagram presented him with the perfect platform to do that.
