He told Mundo Deportivo: "The truth is that Messi played very well in the first leg in Barcelona (against Liverpool) and scored two goals, but in the return, I managed to stop him in some important moments.

"Messi is one of the best players in football history, but I don't think only of duels with him. Both Barcelona and Argentina are two very good teams that have high-quality players.

"Luckily, in the last three matches I have been able to overcome him, but the merits are of the whole team: Roma, Liverpool, and Brazil."
