New Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez reveals that Chelsea made Leo Messi cry.
It happened in 2012, after the Champions League semifinal the Blues won on a 3-2 aggregate, before flying to Munich to lift the trophy.
With a 1-0 lead from the first-leg, Chelsea produced a great defensive display in the second-leg in Barcelona. After seeing captain John Terry sent off early in the game, the Blues managed to draw 2-2 at Camp Nou with Fernando Torres scoring late in the game for Chelsea.
“You might cry during a game if you lose a final,” said Sanchez.
“That’s all part of football. In the Barcelona dressing room after the Chelsea game, I saw Leo Messi cry.
“That’s because players demand so much from themselves. People don’t see that.”
