Lionel Messi's warning to Barcelona players before Liverpool defeat last season

Footage has emerged online of Lionel Messi firing a warning to his Barcelona teammates before their capitulation at the hands of Liverpool last season.

Barcelona have suffered successive heart-breaks in the Champions League of letting huge wins slip away after surrendering a three-goal lead to Roma in the Champions League quarter-finals.

They were again stunned by Jurgen Klopp's Reds after cruising to a 3-0 win in the first leg at the Nou Camp, being dumped out 4-3 on aggregate on an unforgettable night.

New footage has emerged thanks to a fly-on-the-wall documentary released by club sponsors Rakuten, in the clip, the Argentinian superstar is seen walking around the dressing room, addressing players.

"Come on guys, remember Rome was our fault, nobody else's, don't let the same thing happen. That was our fault, we can't miss this opportunity. If we do it right, we're there [in the final]. Come on guys, let's take that one little step."

The Catalan giants have booked their spot in the knockout stages of the competition after beating Borussia Dortmund in midweek.
