The captain of the FC Barcelona, besides, explained the differences that sees between the team of the sextete with Pep Guardiola and the one of these last years.

The team went transforming and adapting to the footballers that there was in each season", admitted.

After the stop of selections, still there are subjects that colean in the world of the football. One of them is the conflict of the goal of Germany, where Ter Stegen, in spite of playing one of the two crashes of this week, seems to follow to the shadow of Neuer. Messi elogió to both and preferred to not to wet on which of them would have to play. "They are two grandísimos goalkeepers. They are guardametas of similar characteristics. They read very well the played; with the feet could play like means or midfield players; and they are very fast under the sticks. To Marc know him well and can speak of him, but to Neuer do not see it train and neither look generally his parties, but think that are two similar goalkeepers", recognised.

"Of Jong feels more comfortable of pivote, but adapted well to play of interior"

The rosarino also praised to another of his mates of team. Messi defined to Frenkie of Jong and gave his opinion on his adaptation to the Barça and his style of game. "For him it has been easy to adapt to the team because it came of an alike philosophy in the Ajax. It grew with the same idea and the same way to play, although there it did not touch him a lot play of interior. In the pivote feels more comfortable, but adapted well. It likes him have the balloon, play in cortito, put the pass between lines, has a fast and strong stride. It is very complete", commented.

It praised to they Go Dijk and to the Inter of Conte

Leo referred also to a mate of Of Jong in Holland, Virgil go Dijk. The Barcelona captain spoke very well of the best player of the past season for the UEFA and explained why is so good. "It is a defence that knows to measure the times and expect to the just moment to go in or hold. It is very fast and grandote, but possesses a lot of agility for the height that has. It is fast by his big stride and by high is impressive", said.

Finally, Messi spoke of the Inter of Milan of Conte, one of the teams to which more has cost him win the Barcelona this course. "It did not surprise me because we knew what went us to find. It had seen it in the Italian League in which it started very well and is litigating him of the same to the same to the Juventus, that is not at all easy. We had studied it before confronting us in Champions, knew that it was a very orderly team, that plays by heart, with a lot of automatisms and that went to be a very difficult rival", concluded.
