Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Lionel Messi, was left shocked by Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg.
Messi sent a “can’t be true” message to fellow countryman Sergio Aguero.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner was another of those left struggling to comprehend what was happening as City endured the most dramatic of continental collapses, with Aguero revealing that Messi had messaged him to say: “Stop joking, can’t be true.”
With Argentine icons figuring prominently in ESPN’s coverage, Carlos Tevez also expressed his shock at seeing Real battle their way back from the brink.
They had already done likewise in a last-16 showdown with Paris Saint-Germain and a quarter-final clash with Chelsea, leading former City striker Tevez to say: “It’s crazy, you can’t win another game like that.”
