New Barca Star Explains What Kind Of Advice Messi Gives Him

A new FC Barcelona star has explained what kind of advice superstar Lionel Messi gives him at the Catalan giants.

What Barca Stars Asked Messi After Spurs Showing

Midfielder Arthur, who arrived at the Camp Nou from Gremio at the beginning of the campaign, has impressed since joining the club and appears to have become a favourite under Ernesto Valverde.

The Brazilian was full of praise for the team's captain Messi, whom he says has given him tactical advice from time to time.

"I admired him for his football, watching him on TV, but in person he is much better. He is a genius, the best that there ever has been," he told the club's official website.

"Off the field, he is fantastic as well. I can only thank him for the confidence boost, to get advice and praise is good and coming from Messi, imagine that.

"(He gives me) a bit of tactical advice because Barca's style is unique and every player has to know where his teammates are on the pitch. Not just Messi, all of them have helped me, the coach too."
