Lionel Messi: Barcelona brutally troll Man Utd with FOUR words after Champions League win | Football | Sport
The Catalan Giants were poking fun at United fans current favourite chant ‘Ole’s at the wheel’, which is their version of the Stone Roses song ‘Waterfall’.
However, their European dreams came to an abrupt end over the course of the two legs.
United had to overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg and it was crucial they scored the opening goal in Spain.
Marcus Rashford nearly gave the visitors a perfect start, but his shot cannoned off the bar after just 40 seconds.
Messi put the hosts ahead with a sublime curling shot from 20 yards and this was followed up by a mistake by De Gea after 20 minutes.
A weak shot from Messi from outside the box found its way under the Spaniard’s body to trickle into the net and in doing so gave United a mountain to climb.
Any hopes of a comeback were ended when Philippe Coutinho added a spectacular curling effort in from outside the area in the second half.
“I have to say Lionel Messi is top quality and he was the difference of course. At 2-0 it was game over,” he said.
“He’s different class, he and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best players of the last decade, everyone agrees on that one.
“Messi showed his quality.
“We have to aspire to get to that level of Barcelona, we can get there but we have loads of work to do.
“If we want to get back to Man Utd’s true level, true traditions, we have to challenge Barcelona.
“They were a couple of levels above over the two games. We want to play these games again next year so we have a massive week coming up.
“There is no point dwelling on what could have been, we have to focus on that week.”
Next up for the Red Devils is a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday.
