Jack Wilshere has revealed how surprised he was to see former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas and Lionel Messi hugging each other.
In his Arsenal days, Wilshere was part of the squad that beat Barcelona 2-1 in a Champions League game at the Emirates.
He won Man of the Match after the game that had Messi, Xavi and Iniesta.
“In the tunnel I was looking at him and thinking ‘oh my God, that’s Messi’,” the former Arsenal midfielder told talkSPORT.
“This was at the Emirates, the first one. I was behind Cesc (Fabregas) and Cesc and him are like best mates. So those two embraced each other and I’m just there thinking ‘wow’.
“I was 19. It was that same game I got man-of-the-match.”
He then joked: “He looked at me like that after the game.”
