Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has revealed he was rooting for Liverpool to beat Real Madrid in the final of last season’s UEFA Champions League.
Messi and his team-mates were knocked out in the quarter-final by Roma.
However, their rivals, Real, went all the way to the final in Kiev, where they beat Liverpool 3-1, to win the trophy for a third successive year and a record 13th time.
When asked who he backed to win the final, Messi told Sport: “I want to win. What the other teams do doesn’t interest me.
“As a Barcelona player, and when we’re not [left] in a competition, I never want our main rival to win.
“But, first of all, I want to win myself.”Follow us on social media:
