Lionel Messi, FC Barcelona’s Argentine star, ate a glucose tablet during the game against Olympiakos in the Champions League. A curious image which was caught on television and was asked about in the post-match press conference.
Valverde said, sarcastically: “He took a glucose tablet? I had no idea, I don’t know. If he took one and scored, hopefully he takes another.”
Messi curled in a free-kick for his 100th European goal.
