And, as we also all know, there was a shocking disregard for the historic tradition of post-game chest festivities. Nary a bare torso could be seen on the pitch.
Even Cristiano. Et tu, Brute?
We were shocked. Shocked and stunned, we were. Needless to say, a formal complaint will be filed with UEFA.
Full props to Barca for two cracking goals and an impressive show out there. Manchester United were gracious in defeat, admitting that they just didn’t play as well as they should have.
Thierry Henry had this to say about the game:
“I’ve been waiting so long to get this title,“ the French star told ITV. “The last five minutes were the longest of my life. You never know what can happen. We were playing against the best team in the world.“
In random interesting news, Pep Guardiola dedicated Barca’s win to Paolo Maldini.
How is everybody feeling the morning after the night before?
