Barcelona Memories from 2011
Barcelona’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United to win the 2010/11 Champions League remains one of the most dominant performances ever in the competition’s final and Lionel Messi has looked back on that match this week.
The Argentine scored the goal that made it 2-1 in that final, with an outside-of-the-box effort bouncing over Edwin van der Sar’s hand.
As part of a promotion with Champions League sponsor Lays, Messi reflected on that goal this week.
“One of my favourite Champions League memories,” he wrote on Instagram.
“Not long until it’s back!”
There were many comments on the post and one of them came from Dani Alves, who recalled how he madly kicked a microphone in celebration.
“I almost broke my foot with that f**king microphone because of you,” Alves joked, along with laughing emojis.
