Tom Brady congratulates Barcelona on 'inspiring' comeback vs. PSG
Tom Brady is familiar with adversity. With his New England Patriots trailing the Atlanta Falcons 28-9 entering the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LI, the 39-year-old engineered one of the great comebacks in NFL history, earning a 34-28 win in overtime.
So if the Super Bowl MVP is congratulating a side on their comeback, you know it must be worthy of praise.
It should come as no surprise, then, that Brady took to Facebook to deliver special praise to Neymar, Lionel Messi and Barcelona on their 6-5 aggregate Champions League round-of-16 win over Paris Saint-Germain after the French champions took a seemingly insurmountable 4-0 first-leg win.
Brady called the Catalans' victory "an inspiring display of will and determination under pressure" before wishing Barcelona the best of luck in the rest of their European campaign.
The image of Brady's Patriots celebrating superimposed on the Barcelona players' postgame festivities? That's less clutch.
