Barcelona Player Broke Into Tears In The Changing Room Following Bayern Munich Loss

It was a tough night in the Champions League for Barcelona against Bayern Munich, and one player was so hurt by it that he broke down in tears in the changing room after.

Barca were humbled in the Nou Camp on Tuesday night, as they were easily beaten by Bayern in the opening group game of this season's Champions League.

The hammering came just over a year after their 8-2 defeat in the quarter finals of the same competition, and, although the scoreline wasn't as embarrassing, the performance wasn't too far off.

Ronald Koeman's team didn't have a single shot on target and their visitors on the night carved open their defence on several occasions.

One player who had a particularly bad time of things was Sergi Roberto, with the 29-year-old having to play at right wing back, and being run ragged by Leroy Sane and Alphonso Davies.

Roberto was whistled throughout and was booed as he was subbed off on 59 minutes. According to AS, the player was so heartbroken by the reaction that he cried in the changing room after.

Both Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets spoke to their fellow club captain in the changing room after but they struggled to lift his spirits.

The midfielder turned right back is said to have not understood where the vitriol towards him came from, after giving it his all in a losing effort.

Pique came out in defence of his teammate in public, saying that the reaction towards his fellow player had 'hurt him.'

"It hurts me a lot personally because I know this person, he’s a spectacular human being and he loves this club more than anybody.

"I’d like to remind people also that he’s not a full-back… he’s a central player, a midfielder. He’s made a sacrifice to play this position and he’s done it phenomenally many times.

"It hurts a lot but the people are free to voice their opinions but if you ask me personally, it hurts a lot."

To rub salt into the Barca wounds, fans are now claiming that the Catalan giants are becoming the Arsenal of La Liga, although at least they're in the Champions League, for now.
