Lionel Messi has called for unity after Barcelona fans jeered Philippe Coutinho during their Champions League semi-final victory over Liverpool.
The Brazilian has struggled to meet expectations since moving from Liverpool in a £149million deal back in January 2018 and contributed little on Wednesday night against his former club.
He was hooked after an hour and was booed off the pitch by his own supporters as Nelson Semedo came on to replace him.
‘Its ugly that they whistle a team-mate like this,’ Messi said after the final whistle.
‘We are all in this together. We have to be united to the end because we are close to are objective now.’
