Lionel Messi said he misses me recently.

It’s true, I enjoyed our rivalry, we pushed each other and became even better players than we already were. But playing in Spain, in La Liga started to feel like a comfort zone; I simply have to step out, to experience different aspects of things, different scenarios in life."

"

It was always, 'Yes, but...' right from the start.

I scored against Real Madrid in the European Super Cup but missed a chance. It was, ‘But he missed that one.’ I scored against West Ham, 'Yes, but...' I told Paul Pogba I was done: One year at Man Utd erased 8 years prior to that. I had to bounce.”
