Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Barcelona – and a former Liverpool star has more than played his part. United went into the game at the Nou Camp looking to overturn a 1-0 defeat in first leg at Old Trafford but a Lionel Messi masterclass gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side no chance. He netted his first goal after 16 minutes before an error by David De Gea made it 2-0 at the break and gifted Messi a second. Then it was time for Philippe Coutinho to shine on the biggest stage. The Brazilian has had a difficult time at the Nou Camp after his £142million transfer last January. There has been talk about the former Reds favourite heading back to the – with speculation that Man United could be one of the interested parties. He certainly made his mark on the Champions League tonight as he picked up the ball from 30 yards out, switched to his right foot and let fly to send a rocket into the top right hand corner. Reds fans enjoyed the moment as Coutinho helped to dump United out of the Champions League – while the 26-year-old put his fingers in his ears after the goal in a possible message to the doubters at Barca. Here is some of the reaction from Liverpool fans on social media… Barcelona went on to wrap up a comfortable 3-0 victory against United – and Coutinho appeared not to acknowledge the fans as he was subbed off towards the end of normal time. The result means that the winners of Liverpool and Porto’s clash will play Barca in the semi-final. Should Liverpool progress on Wednesday, the second leg of the semi will be at Anfield. The Reds take on Porto tomorrow night with a 2-0 lead from the first leg earlier this month.
