PHOTO: Lionel Messi ‘isolates’ himself from teammates after Barca defeat

The photo of Lionel Messi ‘isolating’ himself from other teammates in the dressing room after Barcelona ‘s 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich on Friday night has become a growing sensation since it was first shared on social media space.

The Argentine was visibility devastated after he couldn’t stop the La Liga giants from being dominated by the Bavarians in a massively one-sided Champions League quarter-final.

The viral image pictured Messi unable to come to terms with what had happened in the dressing room as he staring blankly into the distance alongside Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Interestingly, this is the first time since 2006/07 that Messi ends a season without a medal, and the pain of the latest defeat will take some time to get over.
