'Milan have a lot to prove to get back to the old times' - Barcelona-AC Milan in tweets with Hernan Crespo

The former AC Milan striker watched his old club in action in the Champions League on Wednesday night while taking to Twitter as part of Heineken's 'Share The Sofa' evening
Lionel Messi ended a four-game goal drought with a timely double as Barcelona saw off AC Milan 3-1 at Camp Nou and ex-Rossoneri striker Hernan Crespo was left deflated at what he witnessed from his former club.

The 38-year-old tweeted his thoughts on the game for Heineken throughout the encounter, as part of their '#ShareTheSofa' night, and felt the Blaugrana were simply too good for a struggling Milan side.

Goal compiled a list of our favourite tweets from the Argentine during and after the game, including his thoughts on the problems facing Massimiliano Allegri's side and Lionel Messi's return to form.


"AC Milan are doing everything they can here - Barca are pushing them further and further back."

"As I said, Milan can't afford to give away the ball in their own half - Barca punish that every time."

 "Losing 3-1 shows that Milan have a lot to prove if they want to get back to the old times."


"Messi never takes penalties like that. You can see the pressure he's feeling from not scoring in the last four games."

 "He kicked the ball in the middle, praying that the keeper would go down. Hope this gives him some confidence."

 "He's always so good with that perfect first control; he stops the ball and makes the shot look easy."
