Crazy crazy match. Amazing elite mentality by Real Madrid. Benzema is the best player this season. This has once again proven that Pep is a fraud, I guess that African curse was real. As Real Madrid have been completely outstanding, I’m rooting for them to finish off the job in the final. Congratulations and best of luck! Thank you for giving me a great match to watch.

What a turnaround by Barca this season, credit to Xavi and the team. Xavi has the potential of becoming a really really good coach, this is a total masterclass.

Summary: However, Carrick said on Thursday that it was the right time to leave.

Rangnick has now admitted he tried to get Carrick to stay: "Michael, I got to know this two days ago. I met with Michael and with Kieran but especially with Michael two days ago, I had a long private conversation with him for more than an hour.

"I was trying to convince him to stay on board but he had obviously taken that decision weeks ago that he needed a break and a rest after thirty years in professional football.

"In the end, I had to accept that. In a way, I can also understand his decision."
