Nelson Semedo has commented on Lionel Messi’s ‘natural’ ability from set-pieces, claiming that the Barcelona superstar never practices free kicks.
While asked how it feels to practice with Messi on a regular basis, the full-back, who is currently on loan at Wolves for the season, told The Telegraph: “Wow. I’m at a loss for words to express my respect for him. ”
“Do you want to know what made him even more incredible? During my time at the club, I never saw him taking a free kick in training. He never did, I swear!”
“We used to practice shooting from distance all the time, but Messi never took a free-kick. It felt natural for him.”
“They say practice makes perfect – with him, it was no practice and it was still perfect!”
