The albiceleste captain and forward of Barcelona, Lionel Messi, affirmed on Tuesday that to see the Brazilian Neymar in Real Madrid "would be terrible" and "a hard blow". It would be terrible for what Ney means for Barcelona, in spite of the way he went ... He won important titles here, it would be a hard blow for everyone, it would surely be a big blow for the entire Barcelona team. it would be much stronger than it already is, "Messi told Argentine channel TyC Sports. "He already knows, I already told him, we're still talking," he added, laughing at his former teammate, who now plays for Paris Saint-Germain.
The captain albiceleste also reiterated that he does not compete with the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and appreciated that Real Madrid wins even playing badly, something that Barcelona does not usually do. "I do not compete with him (Ronaldo) .I am encouraged to see Madrid again in the Champions League final, to see them win Liga to them or to see other champions teams, that stimulates me.I want to be a champion every year, I want to win collective things all the years, I'm not interested in the other, "he explained. "Madrid have something, they have it: they win, they play badly, they win, they are making a bad game and they take it forward, it costs us a lot more, we have to be very superior to win. in Europe, they come out to play differently, "he said. In addition, he revealed that he is not interested in being the best in history. "Whenever I start a year I try to win everything, to leave everything every time I go out on the court, to give the maximum for my teammates and for me, nothing else, I do not think about being the best in history, it does not change anything" , he claimed.Get your free fun betting odds.
"I always want to improve, I do not compete with anyone because, as I said before, I do not compete to be the best in history but to improve myself year after year, to improve what I have done and keep winning." Winning with the national team would be the best, but still it was not given to me, "he said. 'La Pulga' considered that "making a good World Cup" in Russia would be to reach the semifinals because Argentina "minimally deserves to be there because of the history it has." "We have no obligation to anyone, we are the first to be champions, we want to win, the fact that we were in three finals and could not have been champions in any of them is also a weight that we carry. he added. For Messi, the best candidate to win the World Cup, because he has very good players, a very strong defense and strikers who "liquidate" you.
They have strong players. They know very well what they do, they have very mechanized all movements at the group level, "he explained. He also put Spain as a candidate "for the players he has" and "for the way he plays", which, for him, is more eye-catching than Brazil's. "Germany is always there, France has very good players, but that's where they play against who has many young people," he said. Messi believes that the friendly that Spain beat Argentina 6-1 in March "did a lot of damage" to the Albiceleste but, in his opinion, the difference between the two teams was not as wide. At the end of the interview they asked him if he thinks that he will ever share a team with his friend Sergio 'Kun' Agüero, currently at Manchester City. "I do not go to City, if it happens it's because they bring Kun here," he said.
