Five Years Ago Today, Lionel Messi 'Ended' Jerome Boateng's Career At The Camp Nou

Five years ago today, Jerome Boateng had his most famous moment in the Champions League for all of the wrong reasons after Lionel Messi absolutely ruined him.

During the first leg of Barcelona's 2015 semi-final clash with Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner scored a brace in their 3-0 victory.

However, Messi's second goal left Boateng on his backside after the Argentine ace twisted and turned past him with some brilliant dribbling.

To be fair, the 31-year-old Bayern Munich defender has admitted that he found the funny side of the whole incident.

"That doesn't really affect me. I was laughing at myself. When you fall down or slip in a situation and somebody scores a goal, it's normal," he told ESPN.

"These things happen; it happens to me, it happens to other players, I don't care about these things.

"For me, he's the best player in the world. That's football. Sometimes you look bad or something happens. I'm a defender, that doesn't kill me or anything."
