Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola would like to get inside Lionel Messi‘s brain to see how the attacker withstands the pressure of being the key figure for Barcelona and Argentina.
Messi continues to excel and is widely seen as one of the greatest players of all time, with his consistency at the highest level simply staggering.
“He is one of the most privileged, gifted athletes of all time,” Guardiola told Catalunya Radio.
“I would like to enter his brain and find out how he can withstand the pressure like he has, with both Barcelona and Argentina on his back.
“The whole world expects him to score three goals and set up three goals in every match.
“The other players know that they have Messi on their side and will rely on him.”
