Lisbon: After being humiliated by Bayern Munich 2-8 in the Champions League quarterfinal on Friday, Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi is totally devastated by the performance of his side. The scoreline was too difficult for him to intake and it’s very common that a reaction would come out anytime soon.
“I am not Cristiano Ronaldo. I can’t win big games alone,” Messi said after the game. This was the heaviest defeat Messi has ever tasted and will remain in the history books as the biggest-margin victory in a Champions League quarterfinal.
Messi who has scored 26 times and assisted 21 times for his club this season, was like a lone warrior for his side. He is the only man who carried his team to every major success in the last four seasons. The result also stated the team needs a huge turnaround for the next season. Only one magician can’t change the fate of the side as he is getting old now. Time has come for the FC Barcelona board to take serious actions.
