Leo Messi does not forget his adopted country. More than three months after his departure from Barcelona, the Argentine striker from PSG gave an interview to the Spanish daily Marca. If the interview will not be broadcast until Tuesday, the newspaper published a few extracts this Monday evening. And we discover in particular the Pulga evoke the status of the Parisian club in the Champions League.
« Everyone says we are the big favorites, and I won’t deny that we are one of the title contenders, admits the six-time Golden Ball. But we still need things to be a really strong team. We still have to consolidate as a team. But we have great players. «
Under the spell of Sergio Ramos
Among them: Sergio Ramos. If the Spanish defender has not yet played with Paris, Messi knows him by heart, having faced him for years on the lawns of La Liga. Sometimes heated duels, a thousand miles from the relationship that the two men visibly maintain today. « Sergio Ramos as a teammate is quite a spectacle, » he said.
Lionel Messi also comments, unsurprisingly, the arrival of his former partner Xavi on the Barça bench. « With Xavi, Barcelona will grow up, he is a coach who knows a lot and who knows the house perfectly, he believes. He has spent his whole life in Barcelona, he is very important for the club and the supporters. «
