Barcelona superkid Dos Santos: I want to be like Messi, Ronaldinho

The Mexican teenager is regarded as the best talent for his age in the world and was in dazzling form against the Chinese.

"My teammates have accepted me very well and now what I must do is continue playing like this," said Dos Santos. "I am very happy and I feel very motivated, because I am in one of the best teams in Europe and for me this is a dream fulfilled. I want to take advantage of all the minutes that they give me.

"The comparison with Lionel Messi has existed for a long time, but he is a star, he has achieved many things and I am only just starting, but someday I would like to be like him."

Of another famous teammate, Dos Santos added: "Ronnie [Ronaldinho] was always my idol, a world class crack who I hope to learn many things from this season. Hopefully someday I will be at his level."
