Playing with Messi made me mentally exhausted; The Milan legend revealed
Lionel Messi is progressing unbeaten in world football. Lionel Messi completed his career by winning all the major titles in club and international football as he won the Copa America, Finalissima and World Cup under Lionel Scaloni.
Alessandro Nesta, the legendary star of the Italian club AC Milan, has revealed many of his experiences playing with Messi.
He has revealed that an incident that happened while playing against Messi in the 2011-2012 Champions League season gave him a lot of mental stress.
In the 2011-2012 season, Barça and Milan met four times in the Champions League. Barcelona have faced the Catalan club, Milan, twice in the group stage and twice in the quarter-finals, with both games ending in draws.
Messi had three goals and two assists in four games against Milan.
He said that he was a defender in the game with Calcitory Booti and that it was very difficult for him to face Messi and that he felt that he was older when he was facing Messi.
“I kicked Messi in the 10th minute of the game. But then when I fell down during the game, Messi came running to help me and gave me his hand to get up. “When Messi did that, it blew my mind,” Nesta said.
“Messi played as he did in the first 10 minutes even at the end of the game. It made me feel older,’ she added.
Messi, who played well in the 2011-2012 season, scored 73 goals from 60 games that season. But despite Messi’s excellence, Barcelona could not win the La Liga and Champions League awards in the 2011-2012 season.
German club Bayern Munich won the Champions League title in 2012 when Real won La Liga.
