Champions League FC Barcelona : Emmanuel Amunike understandably disappointed after Bayern Defeated his Former Club.

For their first time since 1946, Barcelona have conceded eight goals in a single match. It was yesterday evening during the Champions League final 8 against Bayern Munich, final score 8-2. Emmanuel Amunike, retired Nigeria international is truly disappointed and finds this defeat humiliating for his former club.

Amunike concludes that the Blaugrana were disgraced yesterday because they have an ageing squad. And he has urged the leadership of the Catalonia side to revamp the squad ahead of the upcoming season.

Most of Barcelona’s starting players for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich have passed the age of 30. Mainly 6: Pique (33), Jordi Alba (31), Arturo Vidal (33), Sergio Busquets (32), Lionel Messi (33) and Luis Suárez (33).

I don’t understand this Barcelona team but this is football, we need new renovation in the team.” Amunike said.

The Bayern team are well-organized. They have clear ideas what they are playing for. And you could see Barcelona were not comfortable each time they have the ball. The fact remains it is the end of a generation for Barcelona. They just need to see how they can bring in players. When you look at the age of those players also (from the defensive line to the offensive) age is not on their side. Bayern played well and they deserve the result they got“. The former Super Eagle concluded.

Ex-Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles coach Amunike was on the books of Barcelona for four years (1996-2000). And he played three Champions League games, including the qualifying rounds, during his time with the club.
