Jerome Boateng responds To Fan asking him about how Lionel Messi Humiliated him

sportbible: Jerome Boateng has found the funny side of a fan asking him what was going through his head when Lionel Messi ruined him in the Champions League.

The 31-year-old German defender came up against Messi in the first leg of Barcelona’s semi-final clash with Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou in 2015.

During the 3-0 victory, the 32-year-old Argentine superstar planted Boateng on his backside as he tried — and failed — to stop Messi from scoring.

During a Q&A on Twitter, one fan cut straight to the chase and asked the Bayern Munich defender about the incident.

“What was going through your head when Messi did THAT to you. You know what I’m talking about,” Twitter user Mr Moody posted.

Boateng responded by saying that he would “love to see each one of you defending against messi [sic].”

Fans have been quick to share their sympathy with Boateng after he was turned inside out in the memorable Champions League moment.

Twitter user Zach Farver wrote: “Bruh, Messi pulled off one of the fastest changes in direction I’ve ever seen in my life on that play. Nothing you could have done, and it doesn’t diminish how dominant you were the rest of the game.”

While another fan said: “You played it fine keeping him off his left foot. If you didn’t fall over it wouldn’t have been so embarrassing.”

A third, Andrew, tweeted: “Sad thing is, you shut him down the WHOLE game until that moment. Then the World Cup game like. Come on now.”

And Twitter user Adam added: “There was nothing you could do in that situation, it it [sic] was me I’d have tried to snap him next chance I got.”

Messi scored twice in the match as Barcelona took a 3-0 aggregate lead into the return leg at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich would come from 2-1 down to win 3-2 in the second leg, with Barca ultimately progressing to the final and beating Juventus 3-1.
