Leo Messi is the leader of the FC Barcelona​, but the rosarino is not less in Argentina every time that it has to go to play with his selection. Although in his country there are too many critics with the '10', the reality is that for the changing room of the albiceleste the forward is the big referent. The more youngsters admire him, the veterans trust he and those that already carry some years coinciding with him protect him at all times.

One of these players that still are young, but that already carry a time playing at the side of Leo is Rodrigo Of Paul. The ex footballer of Valencia, now in the Udinese, spoke on the relation that has with the attacker of the Barcelona. The mediapunta left clear that has a lot of 'feeling' with him and that the six times Balloon of Gold is used to to kid a lot by how plays with Argentina.

"Messi says us that to Walls and to me hate us all the rivals. We answer him that we have to litigate because we can not command it to him to this. We laugh us a lot", it affirmed, referring also to Leandro Walls, midfield player of Paris Saint-Germain. So much the one of the PSG like the one of the Udine have the same age, 26 years, and are used to 'kill' by the culé every time that jump to the field.

Precisely, the one of Sarandí recognised that he and Walls are of an intermediate generation between the veterans, as Leo, and the more youngsters, as for example Lautaro Martínez, that carries only a pair of years going with his country. "Messi put to disposal like captain that is. We are the link between the biggest and the more boys. Sometimes we seat us and we listen experiences of the biggest", confirmed.

Of Paul, proud to be able to play with Argentina

On the other hand, changing of subject, Of Paul admitted that can play with Argentina always has been a dream for him. "For me the Selection is the maximum. Always I was an enamoured and always dreamed with putting me the T-shirt. You do not darse the big until you go in to the field and dress you with these colours for the first time. You do not want to you take out more the T-shirt", stood out, thrilled.

The Argentinian also left clear that does not have problems in adapting to a more defensive and hard-working role when it plays with the albiceleste. "In Udinese have a lot of offensive responsibility and in the Argentinian Selection assume a different role because have a lot of players in the zone of attack. I consider me an intelligent footballer that can adapt me to anything", finalised.
