Spanish press attacks Messi, Barcelona coach

"When you do things badly, make lots of mistakes and don't adapt to the game, this is what happens".

According to Ivan San Antonio of the same outlet, Valverde had a similar message: "We're sorry for them, for the disappointment".

"A failure without excuses", explained their front pay, using an editorial adding: & "Valverde's fear renders Barca with the Champions League at the era of Messi".

Barcelona have failed to progress beyond the last eight of Europe's elite tournament in the last three years, after having claimed the trophy four times in the 10 years before that.

Lionel Messi and his teammates lost to Roma 3-0 on Tuesday in Italy, relinquishing a 4-1 first-leg win and getting eliminated in the quarterfinals for the third straight season.

Catalan daily Sport lamented Barcelona's "Messi-dependancy", while popular nationwide daily El Pais criticised the club's hierarchy for a "path of unlimited spending" and said it was "scary to think about what this club is doing with the best player in history".

"We still have important objectives ahead of us, but to win any trophy is hard", the Barca coach told his postmatch news conference.

Despite suffering the injury during the tie with the Italian outfit in Rome, Rakitic managed to complete the full 90 minutes and La Blaugrana faithful will hope the Croatian returns to first-team action without much delay.

The result immediately went down as one of the great Champions League comebacks, of which there have been many.

"But when he doesn't perform the rest of the players, who are very good, they also don't perform".

Ernesto Valverde's side sit top of the table, 11 points clear of Atletico Madrid.

"[That this was my last Champions League game] is a possibility and for that reason it hurts even more", he said when asked if he thought he'd play in the competition again.

"We've watched Barcelona for a number of months now and even though they haven't conceded many, I'm not sure you cannot concede when you've got two strikers that don't put anything into defending".
