Lionel Messi sends Champions League warning to Barcelona

New, comments

Lionel Messi has opened up about Barcelona’s painful Champions League exit at the hands of Roma and has warned the club they can’t keep failing in Europe.

Barcelona have been knocked out in the quarter-finals of the competition for the last three years in a row and Messi has had enough it seems.

“We’re coming from three consecutive exits in the quarter-finals in the Champions League. That cannot happen to us anymore.

“We are out against teams that are not necessarily better than us. And it keeps on happening. We will try to stop this.”

”We want to break that barrier of exiting in the quarter-finals because we simply cannot go another year without winning the Champions League, for what this club means.”

It’s seems like the Champions League will be the focus for Barcelona next year as they look to lift the trophy for the first time since 2015.
