Lionel Messi (very strong)

The voice of the Argentine football player Lionel Messi when talking about the regularity of Real Madrid, a rival that, in his opinion, will arrive “very strong” to the classic that will be played at the Camp Nou on December 18.

“I expect a Real Madrid very strong, which has been very regular. The Barça-Madrid and the Madrid-Barça are separate, special matches, no matter how one or the other arrives”, said Messi in a commercial act of a sports brand.

Messi appeared at the event accompanied by the sixth Golden Ball that he recently won, an award that he described as “special at the moment” in which he is “on a personal and football level.”

“All the awards are special, all are different, each one has something special. This is special for the moment when I find myself on a personal and football level. They are all special, each one has its own little thing and this one too”, he said.

According to the captain of Barcelona, the secret to continue at the top of his 32 years is “perseverance and work.”
