Attempting to kick Lionel Messi out of a game doesn’t work because he just keeps coming back for more, according to Felipe Melo.
The Brazilian has faced Messi at international level and club and is confident that his Grandchildren will hear the story of defeating him for Brazil
Melo said to Ole, “I have played a lot with Messi.”
“He’s unique because he gets up when you kick him, and returns for another kick. He does not really fear.”
“He is in history’s top three players, it is crazy.”
“I remember when we played for Argentina in Rosario, in a very important match. We won 3-1 and played very well with Veron, one of my greatest idols.”
“Messi didn’t do a lot. I’ll tell my kids, my grandchildren, this story – at least in that game, we’ve stopped Messi.”
