Among these compliments from the French towards the Argentine, Messi also wanted to take advantage of the opportunity and confess how much he admires Zidane: “I admire you a lot, we were not lucky enough to play together, we did face each other a little. "I always respect and admire what you did and continued to do," said Messi, who added that for him "he is one of the greatest in history, I always admired him, I followed him a lot in Madrid, I suffered because I was from Madrid." ”. “He was always a player. Different, elegant, tall, magic, he had everything,” the Argentine wanted to conclude.

In the talk, Zidane and Messi told anecdotes about their careers. The Frenchman highlighted his admiration for the Uruguayan Enzo Francescoli and told the reason why he ended up wearing Real Madrid's number 5.

"TO Florentino Perez They don't like players with 25, or 30. For him, the goalkeeper is 1, and you continue like that with the numbers. The president says 'that's not football, that's American football, please.' It was the first day and I said yes (about number 5). And now it's history for me. 10, good, and 5 too. From the 21st, at Juve, I don't remember much,” he said.
