Rodrigo De Paul spoke about Lionel Messi and Gio Simeone being called up to the Argentina national team.
De Paul gave an interview to El Larguero where he had commented on the upcoming Argentina matches and Diego Simeone coaching Argentina. In the same interview, he also gave his thoughts on Lionel Messi. Here is what he had to say:
“Lionel Messi is an extraterrestrial. When you think he is going to lose it (the ball), he comes out. When you think he doesn’t see you, he leaves you one on one with the goalkeeper. When you think he’s tired, he has one more gear.”
In regards to Lionel Messi’s contract situation with PSG:
“He should come to Atleti!”
He was also asked about Gio Simeone being called up to the Argentina national team:
“We know Gio from a few of the call ups and I believe, like Cholo, he was a guy you see a lot how he shows his feelings. He has a very special love for the national team.
“He has been doing very well in Europe for a few years, which is not easy. But well, now he is in a team that I think deserves to be called up because of the level he is playing at. It’s very well deserved.”
