Argentina and PSG star, Angel Di Maria has jokingly described Lionel Messi as a dwarf.
He also admitted that Messi is the only reason why he can ever consider joining Barcelona in future.
He spoke about how he had the opportunity to join Barcelona in the past as a Real Madrid player.
Di Maria said this to Ole, “I had the chance to go to Barcelona and it didn’t happen,”
“The truth is that if I went, it was to be with him [Messi], to watch him every day, because when he gets the ball I’m a spectator.”
“Yes, I love to play with the Enano [dwarf], I love to see him in training too, the things he does,”
“It’s something unique, impossible to explain.
“The other day in the session, [Marcos] Acuna hit a cross that was impossible for anyone and he scored it with a scissor kick. There you say ‘that’s it, leave it, what can you do, it’s a goal, haha’. None of us could do it. For that, I’m here enjoying it.”
On Messi for the Argentina team, “I see him happy, very happy, he gets along very well with the boys,”
“The issue is that we are the Argentine national team and we have Messi. It’s hard not to be favourite.
“But we already know that just because you are Argentina does not mean that you win.
“Today everything is very even. If you do not give everything on the pitch, it’s difficult. In order to achieve this title, we will have to leave one hundred per cent or more out there.”
