Brazilian right full back Juliano Belletti, scorer of the wining goal in last season's Champions League final against Arsenal, has donated his goal scoring boots to the Barca Museum.

Belletti scored the 2-1 winner in the final and the original boots are on display in the Barca Museum next to the shiny European Cup won in Paris in May. Belletti has signed the right boot, the one he used to shoot and beat Arsenal´s goalkeeper Manuel Almunia to win the European trophy for Barca. Belletti dedicated the left boot to the museum, including the 2-1 result and "Barca!" written on it.
