Beyond that game, the central midfielder from Paris Saint Germain recounted how he is in private. " Messi is a very calm boy, very humble. By far, the best player in the world. With Rodri De Paul we are quite cheeky, ha. One day we grabbed the mate, we hit him on the door and we invited Messi to play the trick. From there we hit very good vibes ", he detailed.
Finally, he referred to the foreign soccer players who declare their love for Boca . "There are many players who would like to play in Boca. It is a joy that they think that way of the club, it marks you how great Boca is. Also everyone asks you about the Bombonera and I I say it moves, it is true what they say. It is unique, I really mean it ", he concluded in dialogue with" Boca Late ".
