Impressionist brings in the big names to comment on Barcelona's ridiculous Champions League comeback

al.jpg

Has everyone calmed down now?

When Barcelona stunned Paris St Germain on Wednesday night by overturning a 4-0 deficit and scoring the three goals they needed to progress in the space of seven minutes, it sort of felt like the footballing world would never calm down again. 

Every fan of the beautiful game has their take on a night at the Nou Camp that immediately claimed a page in the history books. Some want to talk about PSG’s remarkable implosion and woeful defending, others haven’t stopped thinking about Neymar’s superhero-esque man of the match performance. One of our writers argued that diving is in fact a good thing for football, but your dad and all of the other dads at the pub are adamant that it takes the shine off what Luis Enrique and his players achieved. 

But what do Jeff Stelling, David Beckham and Jurgen Klopp think about it all? Irish comedian Al Foran has the answer. The impressionist had hot-off-the-press reactions from some of the most recognisable names in the sport. 

We find out that Sir Alex Ferguson, while impressed with Barca’s endeavours, doesn’t even rank their Camp Nou comeback as the best the famous stadium has witnessed. Roy Keane wasn’t gushing with praise either. Old Golden Balls, unsurprisingly, was all about the free kick. 

We reckon he got it pretty much spot on.
