Messi cuts a devastated figure in Barcelona dressing room
Barcelona skipper Leo Messi couldn’t hide his devastation after his club’s humiliating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in Champions League quarter finals on Friday night.
The six times World Player was helpless to stop his side from being routed by the Germans in a massively one-sided affair in Lisbon.
An image that emerged from the team dressing room shows a sorry figure of Messi who unable to quite come to terms with what happened, staring blankly into the distance alongside Marc-Andre ter Stegen who had the heaviest match of the night.
It is the first time since 2006/07 that Messi ends a season without a trophy, and the pain of the latest defeat will clearly take some time to get over.
