Sevilla striker Wissan Ben Yedder took to Twitter after his side’s 4-2 defeat to Sevilla to pay tribute to Lionel Messi.

The Barcelona captain produced a brilliant hat-trick to win the match for the visitors, and Ben Yedder explained how they would probably have won otherwise.

He wrote: “In this world, perhaps we would have won the game. But there was a player from another planet who wanted it another way...”

It’s a nice touch from Ben Yedder on what must have been a really tough defeat for Sevilla.

They twice took the lead against Barcelona but ended up slipping to yet another defeat.
