'The red card let Barcelona loose' - Manchester City-Barcelona in tweets with Patrick Kluivert

The former Blaugrana striker watched his old side in action in the Champions League on Tuesday while taking to Twitter as part of Heineken's 'Share The Sofa' evening
Barcelona showed they remain a force to be reckoned with on Tuesday night after beating Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash.

Patrick Kluivert watched his former club in action as goals from Lionel Messi and Dani Alves sealed victory and tweeted his thoughts on the game for Heineken throughout the encounter, as part of their '#ShareTheSofa' night.

Goal compiled a list of our favourite tweets from the former Netherlands international during and after the game, including his thoughts on the current Barcelona side, his ultimate five-a-side team and the most interesting footballer he's ever met...


"Bit disappointed that it's only 0-1, and that goal was a penalty. Had expected at least 4 goals tonight."

 "#FCB are not as good as they were at their height, but they're still the best."

"There we have it! Lot of possession didn't do much in the 1st half. Then the red card unleashed FCB."


 "Demichelis - just not fast enough, and just lost track of Messi. Clear penalty."

"Toure and Kompany have to stay so tight - Barcelona are trying to pull them all over the place."


@Heineken #ShareTheSofa PK, who's the most interesting footballer you've met, off the field?

Kluivert: "It's one I also knew on the field; Ronaldinho - amazing guy."

@Heineken If you could have a 5-a-side team of players who came through the Ajax academy, who would the 5 players be? #ShareTheSofa

Kluivert: "Seedorf, Davids, Sneijder, Van der Vaart, me."

@Heineken you were linked with Man Utd in your prime. Did you ever come close to joining? #ShareTheSofa

Kluivert: "That was close...I would've loved to have played for Manchester United, but it didn't happen."
