carlos vidal

i’m on the verge of crying because i can’t believe this is how xabi and fips are saying goodbye to champions league in their careers, i also can’t believe the ref bad calls and that carlo didn’t sub off vidal early enough and subbed off lewy but i really can’t be mad at bayern. manu doing god’s work as always, mats and boa playing well even through injury and pain, we just fought as hard as we could. i’m really sad right now but i’m so damn proud of my team. mia san mia and let’s get that double for xabi and for fips.
