Angry Lionel Messi responds to Barcelona fans insults at airport

Barcelona team bus leaves Messi behind after crushing defeat to Liverpool

Lionel Messi asked angry Barcelona supporters verbally abusing him on his way home what he had done to upset them, reports say.

Barcelona and their talisman are still reeling from their collapse at Anfield, which saw Liverpool overturn a three-goal deficit to book their place in the Champions League final.

Liverpool crushed Barcelona 4-0 in an explosive performance, with Messi unable to get his usual grip on the game.

Messi had scored twice in the 3-0 win at the Nou Camp in the first leg and was reportedly in tears after the defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday night.

A group of fans confronted Messi at John Lennon Airport airport as he was heading back to Barcelona and Mundo Deportivo claim the 31-year-old spoke to the supporters after hearing their insults.

Messi responded to their abuse by saying: ‘What’s your problem? What did I do? What did I do wrong?’

A Barcelona club official stepped in to guide Messi away from the supporters and there was another group of fans who were there to support their player.

The Spanish press have opted to tear into Messi’s team-mates rather than lay the blame at the Argentina international’s feet.

Former Liverpool duo Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez have faced extreme criticism from fans and media in the wake of the loss at Anfield.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi both scored twice for Liverpool in the 4-0 victory, as the Reds now prepare for their second Champions League final in as many seasons.

Liverpool will play Spurs in the final after Lucas Moura scored a dramatic winner six minutes into added time to put Tottenham through on away goals in Amsterdam.
