Former FC Barcelona and Spain national football team captain Carles Puyol visited Jakarta on Monday (11/03) as part of the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour (UCL). Presented by Heineken, UCL's main sponsor, Puyol met with fans and journalists at Lotte Shopping Avenue in South Jakarta.

The former defender won the "big ear" twice during his time with Barcelona, beating Manchester United 3-1 in the 2011 Champions League final held at Wembley Stadium, which was a repeat of the 2009 final, the fourth European Cup the illustrious club won.

The Catalan legend delighted the crowd when he addressed them in Bahasa Indonesia. "Selamat siang. I feel honored to be here as ambassador for the UEFA Champions League Trophy Tour."

La Orejona will stay in Jakarta on March 11-12 and then move on to Surabaya on March 16-17.
