Joao Cancelo's post-match interview after scoring winner for Barcelona is freaking people out
| Last updated
Barcelona defender Joao Cancelo gave a post-match interview to remember after he scored a dramatic last gasp winner against Celta Vigo. And trust me, you won't forget this one in a hurry.
The 29-year-old full-back, who joined Barca this summer on a season-long loan from Manchester City, recorded a Player of the Match performance against Rafael Benitez's side.
After the Catalan giants went two down after goals from Jorgen Strand Larsen and Anastasios Douvikas, the home side managed to pull one back through Robert Lewandowski.
The Poland international soon equalised in the 85th minute thanks to some great work from Cancelo.
And then, with one minute of normal time remaining, the Portuguese defender sent the Camp Nou into delirium with a neat finish from close range. Just look at what it meant.
After the full-time whistle, Cancelo played down his performance with a humble assessment of his outing.
"I was lost in the game. I made many technical errors that are not normal in my game. I had to improve and turn things around," he said.
“I tried to give everything until the end and we were able to come back and to win is the most important thing. If I perform, the club will love me. If not, they will kick me out."
As well as his modest comments about Saturday's display at the Camp Nou, many people spotted his rather terrifying facial expressions midway through the interview.
You can see footage of that moment below.
Here's how social media reacted to the clip.
One said: "Bruh I actually jumped," while another commented: "I'm convinced he's a vampire fighting the urge to eat that journalist."
A third wrote: "Sergi Roberto from 2015 was possessing his body and left during the interview,"and a fourth added: "At first I thought this was a Snapchat filter."
Barcelona manager Xavi hailed his team's "winning character" after the final whistle.
"We didn't play well (but) came up with the epic, showing winning character," he said. "Historically we have lacked that. This shows the generational change we have, they didn't give up, two nil down at home."
Xavi added: "I think this generation fights until the end. What happened today is a tremendous turning point of winning character, we didn't play well but it's about character, faith, the epic."
