Lionel Messi looks heartbroken and Ter Stegen devastated in Barcelona dressing room picture after 8-2 Bayern Munich loss

LIONEL MESSI could not hide his disappointment in the dressing room after Barcelona's 8-2 defeat.

The Spanish side were ripped apart by Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final tie.

Fans are convinced the 33-year-old will hand in a transfer request after the humiliating defeat.

A snap of Messi after the match shows him slumped on his own in the dressing room.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner appeared heartbroken as he stared into space.

Rio Ferdinand has also backed claims that the Argentine could quit his beloved Barcelona.

Speaking on BT Sport, he said: "What is Messi thinking going home tonight?

"Does he want to spend his time left in that shirt given the performances and the way the squad is looking at the moment in comparison to other teams around Europe?

"Has he got the time to sit there and wait?"

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen also looked devastated after conceding eight goals.

Reports claim the LaLiga side have already decided to sack struggling manager Quique Setien.

Club legend Xavi, now boss of Qatari club Al Sadd SC, has been tipped to replace him at the Nou Camp.

Pique also hinted after the match that he could call time on his career with the Catalan giants.

The defender, who has made 543 appearances for Barca, said: "We must bring in new blood to change this dynamic, and if necessary, I would be the first to leave."
