Brazilian Starlet: What Messi Told Me In Tunnel Before Latest Game

A Brazilian starlet at FC Barcelona has spoken about what it is like to play alongside superstar Lionel Messi, and revealed the contents of his chat with the Argentine in the tunnel before their latest match.

Messi Breaks Muller Record, Closes In On Pele

Malcom was handed his first LaLiga start against Real Betis on the weekend, following the impact he made in the UEFA Champions League against Inter Milan last week.

The 21-year-old has since heaped praise on his captain, whom he says always wants what his best for the team before himself.  

"A few minutes before starting the match, in the tunnel, he told me that when he gets the ball, he will find me," Malcom told ESPN Brasil.

"And he does because he's a football alien. He's someone who always wants the best for the group.

"This is why he's the captain and someone who can inspire players to give their best because, coming from someone who has five Ballon d'Or awards, you end up doing well and you're motivated to do it."
