Last night’s historic Champions League game in Barcelona will live long in the memory as the La Liga Champions made history in turning over a 4-0 deficit to knock out a shell-shocked Paris Saint Germain.
Speaking on ITV as reported in the Irish Independent former Manchester United captain Roy Keane too was astounded at the history created in the Nou Camp.
“PSG are no mugs. I know they have given away some daft goals and there were some dodgy decisions, but for Barcelona to score six goals was amazing.
“It was a fantastic watch. We have played at a decent level. Glenn probably at a better level than me, but that makes you appreciate and love the game so much.
“Football is the best game on the planet by far and games like that confirm as much.”
Keane has never been one to hide his opinion and although Barcelona were magnificent, the ex Irish international feels Paris Saint Germain threw it away.
“Their heads went and they were just hanging on at the end. PSG will never forgive themselves for that.
Keane also referenced a chance in which Javier Mascherano has now admitted he fouled Angel Di Maria as one of the crucial moments of the game.
“They had chances themselves to finish them off. Di Maria, that was the moment. I didn’t fancy him, he didn’t get his stride right and he should have finished it.
“They would have said, if we score one goal tonight we will go through. We all felt Barcelona would have scored three or four, but no way would they get six.”
Keane too was part of an amazing night at the Camp Nou when his Manchester United team came from behind to win the Champions League in 1999 beating Bayern Munich, although his suspension meant he had to watch from the stands.
