'Lionel Messi Dominates & Scores Whenever He Wants!'
A new FC Barcelona signing has hailed five-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, who he believes can find the back of the net whenever he wishes and from wherever he wishes.
Clement Lenglet recently arrived at the Catalan giants from LaLiga rivals Sevilla, after a superb 2017/18 campaign.
The 23-year-old is happy to not have to go up against Barca anymore, praising Messi for being a player who can score a goal at given moment, while he also had good things to say about the team as a unit.
"I am really happy to be here, because I don't have to play against them now," he said, according to the club’s website.
"Messi is the best in the world. He dominates games easily and can score at any moment from wherever he wants.
"If you have some luck, you can stop him a little bit, but then someone else catches you out. When you play with good players, the adaption is a little bit easier and here every player is at the top level.
"Barca's philosophy is to bring the ball out from the back and it's the only club in the world that plays this way.
"Everyone has told me how incredible the city is, too, and that when you sign for Barca you never want to leave."
The centre-back played 73 matches for Sevilla, scoring four goals and assisting one more strike.
