Messi Aigbe: An hilarious trend on social media, particularly twitter trailed Lionel Messi’s inability to rescue his team from defeat during the UEFA semi-final game against Liverpool.
It would be agreed that Liverpool did the unthinkable on Tuesday when they defeated Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final second leg 4-0 to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg at Nou Camp.
Both Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum scored braces that led to a 4-3 aggregate.
Following the unexpected victory, fans on twitter hailed the Reds for their incredible performance. However, trends on twitter became hilarious after a twitter users suggested that it was Messi Aigbe that played for Barca, not Lionel Messi.
Mercy Aigbe has since reacted to the trend, saying;
“Nigerians will not kill me oh Wetin be my own for this football matter, that people have been tagging me since”
