|Barca Team Bus Leaves Lionel Messi At Anfield After Liverpool Defeat, See Why! by tommykiwi(m): 12:08pm On May 08, 2019|
Barcelona’s team bus did not wait for Lionel Messi as it departed Anfield without the Argentine after the Champions League defeat to Liverpool. Messi suffered a miserable night for his club as Liverpool completed a stunning comeback to knock Barca out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening. Barcelona appeared to have a commanding advantage after securing a 3-0 win in the first leg at Camp Nou last week. But Jurgen Klopp’s side put four past Barca without reply to book their place in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1. Messi, meanwhile, was required to undergo a doping test immediately after Barca’s crushing defeat at Anfield.
And according to El Chiringuito, the process took so long that Barca’s team bus headed to the airport while Messi was still at Anfield. Messi was eventually able to provide a urine sample, while special arrangements were made to reunite the Argentine with the rest of the squad and coaching staff before they travelled back to Spain. Messi also walked through the mixed zone at Anfield much later than the rest of Barca’s players but said nothing to the media as he was escorted out of the stadium.
Meanwhile, Sergio Busquets has apologised after Barcelona’s humiliating exit. ‘They have been better than us. I apologise,’ said the midfielder. ‘After what happened in Rome, this happened again. It’s tough to go out like this after the first-leg result. ‘Liverpool have been smarter than us, they were faster. I think we had chances to score the goal we needed, but it wasn’t meant to be today.’
