12 days on from that historic night in Barcelona, we have just about recovered from Sergi Roberto's remarkable last minute winner against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League round of 16.

When I say recovered, I mean the bruise on my knee has finally disappeared after running into a table celebrating.

We've already reported on every aspect of the game, including what Marco Verratti said to Barcelona players during the tie, and how Neymar trolled PSG players after the final whistle.


Now it has been revealed by Adrien Rabiot himself that he regrets playing against Barcelona on the 8th March, because he was suffering from a lung infection.

Rabiot was praised for his performance at the Parc des Prince in February, but it turns out he shouldn't have played against Enrique's side at the Camp Nou:

"Yes, I can confirm it (that I played with a lung infection). It was quite difficult, but I really wanted to play this match.

I regret it now because I wasn't 100%; maybe it would have been better to leave my place to someone else."


Rabiot will also regret the picture he uploaded hours after their 4-0 win against Barca.

In the aftermath of his late heroics, which included two goals and the assist for Sergi Roberto's dramatic, last second winner in Barca's 6-1 victory, Neymar decided to use his Instagram story to fire shots at Rabiot and his teammate Layvin Kurzawa.

The original image came from Rabiot's Instagram after the first leg, which PSG emphatically won, as we all know.

Back in 1998, Nicky Butt's typically wayward strike hit me right in the head. I proceeded to fall off my chair. I cherish this moment.
