Xavi Reveals Messi’s Special Treatment in the Field
The legend of Barcelona reveals interesting facts about Lionel Messi. He confirmed that the Argentine striker had a special treatment in the field.
Messi is undoubtedly Barcelona’s best player in the last two decades. The 30-year-old has contributed 29 titles in all competitions.
Total, Messi has also donated 521 goals from 594 matches. He also becomes vice-captain if Andres Iniesta is absent.
“Barcelona and the Argentine national team can not afford to let the game play 10 minutes without Messi holding the ball,” Xavi said as quoted by Calciomercato.
“If he is not involved in the game, then he will be angry, you have to give him a ball when five or 10 minutes are already in another player,” he added.
Messi’s special treatment is felt by other players. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Alexis Sanchez, and Neymar are some players who were wasted from Barcelona because of Messi.
