Barcelona star Lionel Messi may be the world’s best but he is “not invincible”, according to Chelsea forward Pedro.
The Spaniard faces the Argentina international when Chelsea host Barca in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Tuesday.
“Messi is the best player in the world, but he’s not invincible,” Pedro said. “Obviously, it’s Barcelona. It’s Leo Messi. It’s very difficult to stop this guy because he’s very quick, very clever. But, look, it’s not impossible. He’s on another level. No one can do what he does. For this reason, to have played with him is special.
Special for me, and something to tell my sons in the future because, probably, he’ll be considered the best in history.”
