'Lionel Messi Is The Best & Most Humble Player I Know!'

By Keegan Kruger - May 08, 2018 04:14 PM @KeeganKruger

After FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi produced another outstanding performance in Sunday's El Clasico, a former teammate of his shared some insight into what it is like to play alongside the Argentine.

Ramos: What Messi Did To El Clasico Ref In The Tunnel

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was on hand to score a crucial second goal for a 10-man Blaugrana side that drew 2-2 with arch-rivals Real Madrid at the Camp Nou on the weekend, and former France international Eric Abidal has since revealed that, to this day, he feels honoured to have shared a dressing room with the Argentine.

"Lionel Messi is the best player in the world, but he's also the most humble star I know," Abidal told Radio Trinidad.

"I shared six years with him in Barca's dressing room, and it was an honour to sit by his side. It was a pleasure to see him prepare and smile. I never saw him stressed out.

"He knew he had the talent he needed to help and make the difference on the pitch, but always with a positive attitude and humility with the rest of the players. I learned a lot from him."

The 30-year-old, who won his eighth LaLiga title this season, has made 52 appearances for Barcelona so far in this campaign, scoring 44 goals and assisting a further 18 strikes.

Messi is unbelievable, so much quality. We are glad to have watched him since he came through as a little boy hungry for success. Blessed are those who trained with him, played with him and celebrated wins together. It must be a great feeling indeed.
