Barcelona star makes shocking admission after being jeered by own fans

Barcelona, Sergi Roberto

Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto has opened up about the terrible experience he had with live home fans at Camp Nou.

Earlier this season, Bayern Munich thumped Barcelona at home 3-0 in their UEFA Champions League match.

The dejection was reportedly at the highest level that Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto was even reduced to tears moments after the home crowd jeered him.

Recounting the devastating experience, Roberto, who was included in the Barcelona squad that didn’t hit a single shot on target against Bayern Munich, stressed that he did have a good start this season to deserve that kind of reaction from the crowd.

However, he also admitted that during the said game, he “was very screwed up.”

“I started the season with two goals and one assist,” Roberto told Diario Sport. “This is why I was a bit surprised by the whistles. You have to respect everyone’s opinion and use it as extra motivation, extra motivation to work more, compete better and face it in this way.”

“If I am known for something, it is because I will not stop fighting and I will always work to the fullest,” he continued. “I have done it from day one and will continue to do so. I’m not going to fool you, that day I was very screwed up. Both the day of the game and the following days. It had never happened to me and it’s unpleasant. I have been a player who has spent my whole life at the club and things like that, nobody likes them. If it didn’t affect me, it would be a problem. It would mean that I don’t care and I do care.”
