Braithwaite: "I Won't Wash After Hugging Messi" As Messi Scores 4 In A Game by ogbiwa: 6:47am On Feb 23, 2020
Barcelona's emergency signing Martin Braithwaite joked he "won't wash my clothes after I hugged Lionel Messi" after setting up one of the Argentina legend's four goals in a thumping win over Eibar.

Barca were given special dispensation to sign former Middlesbough man Braithwaite this week, and he came off the bench to play a part in late goals for Messi and Arthur that put the pressure back on title rivals Real Madrid.

"Messi congratulated me, he's a great guy and tried to make me feel comfortable on the pitch by passing to me often," Braithwaite, 28, said.

"I'm very happy to have given my first assist to Leo."

Messi scored three goals in 26 first-half minutes before adding a late fourth from Braithwaite's saved attempt as Barcelona moved two points above Real Madrid, who suffered a shock defeat at Levante later.

After a slow start, Messi scored a sensational opener when he rounded off a brilliant solo run by chipping the ball over Eibar's Marko Dmitrovic after 14 minutes.

As half-time approached, another quick burst of pace culminated in Messi firing a second low into the corner, and the Argentina forward converted from a loose ball three minutes later to kill the contest before the break.

Eibar continued to battle in the second half as both sides had goals ruled out for offside, but the hosts finished with a flurry as Messi capped a wonderful individual performance with his fourth three minutes from time and Arthur completed the rout.

Coach Quique Setien admitted he was surprised by the impact made by his new signing.

"Braithwaite did more than I expected, much more," said Setien.

"Honestly, I think we've made an extraordinary signing. He will adapt perfectly to what we want to do, he was involved in two goals and he understands the game so well."

Reigning La Liga champions Barca face Napoli in the Champions League last-16 on Tuesday, before travelling to the Bernabeu to face Real Madrid on Sunday.

It was only 24 hours ago that we were reading a news about this guy titled 'Why will Barcelona sign a Middlesbrough reject?'

Only God knows our future!

Just believe in yourself and all things will work out for you.


We woke up with this song on our lips this beautiful morning...

*singing*

My blessings come now
Favour fall down on me
Goodness and mercy follow me, everyday
Everything wey I touch
For this life, anything wey I want
Shey na mansion o, shey na porche o
Na me get am o
If dem dey doubt you, no mind dem
If bad belle come, make you bind (blind) dem

My time don come oo
Ayo wa ba le mi o

Ire ooo – ire
Ayomide o – Ayomide
Everyday ooo showers of blessings rain on me

Shey na money wey u want - Oya o
Abi o fe ra moto o
Time don come o
Oh Ayo wa ba le mi o
Happiness knocking – wole wa
Prosperity something – l'on gbe wa
And blessing calling
Oh Ayo wa ba Lemi o


Sing till fade........

Nice one...when you are Big you are BIG...one thing is sure,always try as much as possible to celebrate others cos your own blessing is on its way....Messi celebrated Ronaldo few days back...Just yesterday he did wonders on the pitch.... jealousy will only pull you back if you decide to give it a chance in your life.
