Watch it and your bottom lip will wobble

This is the real reason Barcelona won the CL final – a cheesy, yet rather inspiring highlights package of Barca’s stars in action, cut with footage from Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. (The final was in Rome, you see.)
Barca boss Guardiola showed it to his players before the match against Man Utd and it worked like a charm – if you forget the first nine minutes, when Barca were pants.

    i think the video was the reason for the pants first 9 minutes. it confused them. then they remembered they were actually good footballers on the pitch and went up the gears.
