First it was Real Madrid, and now Barcelona are practicing the dark arts against us in the Champions League.
There have been a few little moments of it so far, but Andy Robertson’s tackle on Leo Messi and his overly dramatic rolling antics show that even the best footballer in the world can resort to sh*thousery when the moment takes him.
In a performance Neymar would be proud of, Messi hammed up the challenge, rolled around on the floor, then smiled when he was done as he begged for the yellow card to be given.
It’s cheeky from Messi but they’re trying to play streetwise.
