Arthur Melo: Lionel Messi makes extraordinary things appear routine

Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo has hailed Lionel Messi’s ability “to make the most extraordinary things appear routine.”

The Brazilian, who joined the Catalan giants from Gremio this summer, impressed during the victory over Tottenham at Wembley but all his praise was reversed for the star of the show Messi.

“Messi makes the most extraordinary things appear routine,” Arthur told reporters, as cited by Marca.

“He is the best player in the history of football and to play alongside him is an honour – he is helping me develop a lot.

“It was a very tough game for us, we know how strong a team Tottenham are and it was a massive test for us, we are very happy.”
