One of the great, if not the greatest player in world football was unable to make a difference at Anfield as the Catalan club were dumped out of the competition.
Barcelona went into the second leg leading 3-0 but Jurgen Klopp’s side stunned their opponents.
Messi was confronted by fans at an airport on Merseyside before heading back to Barcelona, say Mundo Deportivo.
The Argentine repeatedly responded by saying:
“What have I done?”
Barcelona boss Valverde also weighed in on the defeat as he said,
“It’s happened again. It happened last year,”
“It’s true that it has been different games, the first leg and second leg. They started really well and they pinned us back.
“After the early goal, we reacted well after that. We managed to control things a little bit in the second half of the first half. We had half chances to score.
“I think that we conceded two goals and then they really kind of got on top of us after those two quick concessions.
“We haven’t managed to get on the scoresheet tonight. They scored two in two and they kind of us rolled us over, really.
“They have been really strong, they played really well. We’ve got to congratulate them on the performance they put up in the tie as a whole.
“It is a terrible result for our fans and for ourselves. We didn’t expect a situation like this. This is what has happened to us. It is really, really unfortunate but credit is due to Liverpool.”
