‘Messi goes out to assassinate goalkeepers, defenders” – Caballero
Chelsea goalkeeper, Willy Caballero says his compatriot, Lionel Messi goes out of his way to “assassinate” goalkeepers and defenders.
Caballero, 39, played with Messi in the Argentina national team and against the six-time Ballon D’Or winner in La Liga.
He compared the occasions he played against the Barcelona captain to suffering.
“Facing Messi, I had to suffer.
“He goes out to assassinate the goalkeepers.
“The goalkeepers, the defenders – he’s going to kill [them]. And killing means scoring as many goals as possible.
“He doesn’t care if you know him, if you’re Argentine or if you’re a friend. He’ll talk to you afterwards, greet you and everything else, but in those 90 minutes he’s on a mission to hit you with goals,” he told 90min.com
