Watch: Barcelona players queue up to get a photo alongside Lionel Messi
Barcelona players were caught behaving more like star-struck fans next to Lionel Messi after their Copa del Rey victory over Athletic Bilbao.
Antoine Griezman and Frenkie de Jong gave Barcelona a 2-0 lead in the final before Messi drove through the Bilbao team and scored a stunning goal in the 68th minute.
He got his second goal of the game four minutes later to complete a resounding 4-0 victory for Ronald Koeman’s side.
The Argentina international has just two months left on his current contract and this could be the last trophy Messi lifts with Barcelona.
His team-mates then showed how much they are in awe of their captain by lining up to get a picture with Messi and the trophy.
“It was a really difficult Copa to win,” Messi said after the game. “We had to suffer in a lot of the games. It’s always nice to win a trophy. I am really happy for this group of players because they deserved some happiness.
“It’s really special to be the captain of this club, where I have spent my whole life, and it’s a really special Copa (to win).”
