Messi dismisses 'crisis at Barcelona' rumours ahead of CL showdown with Milan
Football ace Lionel Messi has dismissed rumours of a crisis at his club Barcelona and said that the Spanish champions will keep their Champions League hopes alive with a rousing comeback at home against AC Milan on Tuesday.
The crisis rumours have arose following Barcelona's 2-0 down from the first leg of their last-16 clash and head into the match after back-to-back defeats to arch-rivals Real Madrid, the Sun reports.
However, the Argentinian star said that the club is not under any crisis, adding that Barcelona has shown on many occasions that it is able to overcome any obstacle.
Admitting that they had been defeated by Milan and Madrid because of their lack of form, Messi said that they have got a second opportunity to beat Milan and move on to the next round of the Champions League.
Messi further said that Barcelona cannot afford to fail as it has to achieve a lot more this season. (ANI)
