‘Only FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi Makes Me Go Wow!’
A Spain international has revealed that only FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi can make him go “wow” in football.
Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, a former teammate of the Argentine, was asked in an interview what he thought about Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City these days and if he had been impressed with anyone else this season.
“City are playing amazingly, but I don't think 'wow'…(only) Messi makes me go 'wow,’” Thiago told an interview with ESPN.
“Barcelona, Real Madrid, City: There are many teams you'd want to play against, but no team has impressed me.
“They are football players, like us. We just have to compete and see who is better at that moment.”
The 26-year-old playmaker left the Blaugrana for Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich back in 2013 and has seen his club make three semi-final appearances in four years since without reaching the final.
Thiago, who has recently come back from injury, has made 18 appearances for the Bavarian giants this season scoring three goals and assisting in one more.
