The Barcelona’s team bus left behind their captain Lionel Messi as they departed Anfield on Tuesday night after their crushing defeat by Liverpool.
Messi suffered a miserable night for his club as Liverpool completed a stunning comeback to knock Barcelona out of the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Earlier Barcelona has appeared to have a commanding advantage after securing a 3-0 win in the first leg at Camp Nou last week.
Messi who was required to undergo a doping test immediately after the crushing defeat Barcelona suffered against Liverpool at Anfield, was left behind by the team bus.
El Chiringuito reported that the process took so long, that Barcelona’s team bus headed to the airport while Messi was still at Anfield.
Messi was eventually able to provide a urine sample, while special arrangements were made to reunite the Argentine with the rest of the squad and coaching staff before they traveled back to Spain.
The Barcelona captain walked through the mixed zone at Anfield much later than the rest of Barcelona’s players, but said nothing to the media as he was escorted out of the stadium.
