Barcelona players returned home as a laughing stock as fans mocked them when they returned from their 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.
The Catalan giants were thoroughly humiliated by a ‘well-oiled German machine’ in the form of Bayern Munich as they succumbed to yet another heart-breaking exit from the Champions League for the third successive season.
Bayern were ruthless for the entire 90 minutes scoring four times in either half as Messi and co looked on with so much confusion as they crashed out of the tournament.
A brace each by Philippe Coutinho and Thomas Mueller with Serge Gnabry, Ivan Perisic, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski also finding the back of the net for the Bavarians.
Luis Suarez scored Barcelona’s goal with the Catalan giants earlier having a goal courtesy of a David Alaba own goal.
And as they returned to Spain, a group of fans were seen booing the Catalan players as some of the stars quickly made away from the scene.
Recall that a photo of ‘broken’ Messi earlier emerged showing the 33-year-old rooted to the dressing room seat with goalkeeper Ter Stegen also lost in thoughts as to what had just happened.
It was arguably the darkest night in history of the club and Gerard Pique is willing to leave the club if the board feels he is part of the changes that need to be made in the club after a calamitous ending of the season.
Despite winning 20 major trophies in his 12-year spell with the club, Pique believes there needs to be massive changes and is willing to bite the bullet for the club if necessary.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Ronald Koeman has been caught on camera at Barcelona airport amid speculation of Quique Setien's sack.
It is understood the Netherlands' current coach wants to leave the national team job to take up a more lucrative offer from his former team.
The Dutch legend was spotted leaving Barcelona airport on a private plane days after the club's Champions League humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich.
