Lionel Messi: “We Sh*t the Bed” Against AS Roma

The Argentine didn’t mince words


In a new interview with TyC Sports, Lionel Messi doesn’t mince words when assessing Barcelona’s performance in this year’s UEFA Champions League: “Fue un cagadón.”
Literally, it means “it was a huge sh*t” but, in context, I think the expression “we sh*t the bed” fits. If you want a less scatological translation, “we bottled it” would do.
Barcelona led 4-1 through the first leg but went out on away goals by losing 3-0 in Rome.
“We were so close to the semis,” lamented the Argentine star.
Meanwhile, Messi said Real Madrid had the ability to play poorly and still win. “it’s much more difficult for us,” he said, “we have to be much better than the opposition to win.”
