Joao Cancelo left fans petrified after some feared he had become ‘possessed’ during his post-match interview after he inspired Barcelona to an incredible comeback victory against Celta Vigo on Saturday.

Cancelo, who arrived at Barcelona on a season-long loan from Manchester City due to his lack of playing time under Pep Guardiola, has made a remarkable impact in Catalonia.

The right-back's 89th-minute goal secured a thrilling 3-2 comeback win, propelling Xavi's team back to the summit of La Liga, BBC reports.

This marked Cancelo's second goal in consecutive league matches, following his previous score in the 5-0 victory over Real Betis.

As is tradition for the match-winner, the Portuguese defender faced the cameras for his post-match interview, a moment that left fans bewildered.

Upon concluding his response to one of the interviewer's questions, the ex-Juventus defender made an unusual facial expression as the journalist prepared to ask him another question.

In a video shared on social l media, Cancelo's eyes widened, and he displayed his teeth in an almost demonic manner.

Xavi reaches incredible La Liga milestone

Barcelona were on track to suffer their first defeat of the season on Saturday, but Xavi Hernandez's men produced a dramatic comeback from 0-2 down to beat Celta Vigo.

The win gave Xavi his 50th La Liga win, and that was a great way to do it, Sports Brief reported earlier.

Xavi now has 50 wins in La Liga from 70 games. He also has 10 defeats and 10 draws, per Transfermarkt.
