Jerome Boateng Has Message For ‘Haters’ After THAT Fall Against Lionel Messi

Jerome Boateng has broken his silence on his embarrassing fall at the hands of Lionel Messi – and the criticism which has followed Bayern Munich’s defeat to Barcelona.

Messi might have been the man of the moment after the Champions League semi-final first-leg clash at the Camp Nou ended with Barca running out 3-0 winners.

But Boateng was the joke figure after he fell on his backside as the Argentine weaved his way into the Bayern box before chipping over Manuel Neuer for his second of the game.

The German defender stayed quiet in the immediate aftermath of the match, but has now taken to Twitter and sent out a message to his ‘haters’.

He posted an iconic picture from famous movie ‘The Godfather’ with accompanying words which read:

Haters will broadcast your failure, but whisper your success

And he followed that image up by writing “Word”:

Boateng will be hoping to turn in a better performance when he comes up against Messi and Barca this week in the second-leg.

If Bayern can overturn that 3-0 deficit then they may somehow still make the Champions League final in Berlin next month.
