WATCH: James Milner Finally Reacts To Savage Lionel Messi Nutmeg

Who could forget Lionel Messi leaving James Milner on his arse after ruining him with a filthy nutmeg.

Well, Milner has recalled THAT moment while offering his thoughts on the encounter with one of the greatest players to ever don a pair of football boots.

Barcelona faced Manchester City in the Champions League last round of 16 back in 2015, with the Catalans heading into the second leg at the Camp Nou with a 2-1 advantage.

The hosts increased their lead after Ivan Rakitic netted in the 31st minute. Though the match will be remembered for Messi’s savagery.

Who could forget Pep Guardiola’s reaction in the stands, too?!

A few years removed from nutmeg, Milner has compiled his ultimate XI and the man who inflicted him with misery gets a nod.

As well as picking Messi, he’s also reacted to the famous piece of skill.

Former Barcelona full-back Dani Alves gets a mention while Andres Iniesta is also worthy of a spot in Milner’s XI.

“Messi would have to be in there, obviously the amount of goals he’s scored, amazing talent,” The Liverpool utility player said.

“We played against him a few of times in the Champions League and most people probably remember the nutmeg on myself.

“But I wasn’t the first and I won’t be the last to have got megged by him, he’s an unbelievable talent.”

“He’s great to watch, he seems to travel quicker with the ball, than without it,” Milner adds.
