‘Lionel Messi is magical’ – Barcelona teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng

New Barcelona signing Kevin-Prince Boateng has described playing with Lionel Messi as ‘magical’: “He can do everything by himself.”

The Ghanaian forward has arrived at the Camp Nou on a loan deal from Sassuolo until the end of the campaign and will provide depth to Barca’s attack.

“I have played against Lionel Messi and it is the most difficult thing in football,” Boateng told La Vanguardia.

“But it is incredible to be playing with him on the same side, it’s a magical thing because you can truly appreciate his talents and he really can do everything by himself.

“It is remarkable what he can achieve, and it is a dream for me to play here even though it comes at this stage in my career.”
