Nelson Semedo spoke about Lionel Messi winning the World Cup and playing alongside him at FC Barcelona.
Semedo and Messi are both no longer at Barcelona but did play together for a few years. He spoke on the Sky Sports Premier League Youtube channel where he was asked to pick between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and he picked both players. Semedo did go on to say this about playing with Lionel Messi:
“It was easy. You just give him the ball and you just have to run and you know that the ball is going to land in front of you.
“Whatever side of the pitch you are, he puts the ball there like he throws it with his hands and he can dribble, he can score… It’s different yeah.”
He was also asked if he was proud of Messi for winning the World Cup:
“It was good, it was really good to see him winning there, I guess he deserves it as well for everything he gave to football.”
