We’d make it 2-0, then when all this ends I don’t like it, he’s not going either, but I’m moments of great tension, a lot of nervousness and everything happens very quickly, and one reacts but nothing was foreseen, he went away… I don’t like leaving the image like this but these things happen too”he explained in his interview on ‘Urbana Play’ radio.

Talks with Riquelme
The celebration of the Topo Gigio 2022 model, a revival of the original patented 21 years ago, was the bridge that united Juan Roman Riquelme Y Messi in a gestural battle with Louis van Gaal.

It’s preferable to hug him, kiss him . Who doesn’t want to attack you, who doesn’t want to hit you. If you make him angry, it’s worse. When the one who plays the best gets angry, you don’t have a chance to beat him. How do you do it? It’s impossible.”Riquelme commented.
“I talked to Román after the matches, I always talk to him. He had even had a couple of fights with Van Gaal in Barcelona. Every time Román talks about me he has the headline of that style and we talk to him very often,” he said Messi this Monday, during an interview on ‘Urbana Play’ radio.
