MADRID (AP) - Granada has signed the player that Barcelona let go hours after originally signing him when the Catalan club discovered he had posted “offensive tweets” on his Twitter account.

Granada says it has signed 24-year-old Sergi Guardiola for its reserve team.

In December, Barcelona rescinded Guardiola’s contract eight hours after signing him to its reserve team when it discovered that “he had posted offensive tweets against Barcelona and Catalonia.”

Barcelona is heavily identified with Spain’s northeastern region of Catalonia.
