Bayern Munich defender, Jerome Boateng’s infamous slip against Barcelona’s Lionel Messi during the Champions League semi-final game involving both sides last season is one topic that would live in the memory of football fans worldwide.
Speaking exclusively to ESPN FC, the German footballer said he wasn’t bothered about the iconic moment which trended on the Internet for days.
“That doesn’t really affect me. I was laughing at myself. When you fall down or slip in a situation and somebody scores a goal, it’s normal. These things happen; it happens to me, it happens to other players. I don’t care about these things. For me, he’s the best player in the world. That’s football. Sometimes you look bad or something happens. I’m a defender, that doesn’t kill me or anything.”
