UCL: It's a shame - Joan Laporta reacts to Barcelona's elimination

Barcelona president, Joan Laporta, has reacted to his team’s elimination from the UEFA Champions League this season.

Barcelona were eliminated from the Champions League after losing 3-0 to Bayern Munich at Camp Nou on Wednesday.

The Catalan club were praying for a miracle that would see Viktoria Plzen defeat Inter Milan to give them a lifeline in the Champions League.

However, Inter ended up thrashing Plzen and condemned Xavi Hernandez’s men to another European elimination.

Reacting, Laporta said that it was a shame to see Barca crash out of the tournament by losing 3-0 to Bayern in Spain.

“It’s a shame, but you can’t blame the players or the coach for anything,” Laporta told Barca TV.

“We have to look forward because we have La Liga and other competitions left.”

Barcelona will now have one more inconsequential game to play against Viktoria Plzen in November before heading to the Europa League.
