"If Lionel Messi is talking and giving you advice you take it, as he is by far the best player in the world. If he gives advice, you listen."

Sometimes he says you have to be deeper or to the side, small things but it makes the difference."

De Jong says he has had to tweak his game, but is learning from the best.

"In Ajax and the Dutch squad I've had a different role but we're playing with a double six [two defensive midfielders]," he added.

"I have to adapt and it's going OK, but I can improve. I'm at my best when I'm not the most defensive but also not the most attacking [midfielder].

It could be a successful first season in Spain for the Dutch midfielder as Barcelona are top of La Liga and in the Champions League last 16.

However, not everything has gone smoothly as coach Ernesto Valverde was sacked in January, despite them being top.

I agree. He didn't win 6 Ballon D'ors just by being skillful alone. The world has seen an avalanche of equally skillful players come and go. But Messi and Ronaldo have managed to stay at the top consistently for that long because there are some other things they also know.

You listen to the Master when he talks most def......

MESSI IS TRULY THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME.

Ronaldo fans, listen and listen good......

Messi was created and born to play football,
the others came to this world to learn the game, and they mastered it....rightly so anyways.


This is the ONLY difference between Messi and the rest, that many people do not understand!

MESSI is the G.O.A.T.

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections. ❤️

if you wish to go far in life, you have to learn from both the best, and the worst... But most importantly, the bests- Modric, Messi, Ronaldo, Xavi, Aguero, Giggs, Ibrahimovic, etc.

I still don't understand why one man will remain in a club forever.

Messi might or might not be better than Ronaldo, but the latter is more successful today because he break boundaries.

When the best talks, the good ones listen.

LM10 is the Michael Scofield of football. The most intelligent player ever to play the round leather game. Why so? He plays football like a game of chess. He is able to see 4 - 6 moves ahead of play at any point in time. When he starts the one-two pass 50 yards away from goal, everyone probably thinks it's just a harmless passage of play, except the GOAT. Six moves and perhaps seconds later, the net is bulging with the Goalkeeper wondering how it all ever happened. It's unbelievable, it's magic, it's Messi. Yet it's also just another day at the office for La Pulga Atomica. That's why he's the only player ever to be referred to as a PlayStation player, a cheat code.

Another evidence? To play with Messi well, you need to be intelligent as well. Players that are not smart will not make it in Messi's Barca. So when you play with Messi, he improves your overall intelligence as a player. That's what De Jong is talking about. And no, he's not ass-licking Messi.
