‘Valverde is practically blameless’ – Messi insists Barcelona players must shoulder blame for Liverpool disaster

Lionel Messi has defended Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde for the defeat against Liverpool, saying he and his team-mates deserve most of the blame.

Barcelona famously squandered a 3-0 first leg advantage at Anfield, falling 4-0 to the Reds in the return match of their Champions League semi-final.


It was the second straight year featuring a return leg collapse for the La Liga champions, after blowing another three-goal lead against Roma in the quarter-finals of the competition last season.
