Getafe's Licht: Navas gave me more trouble than Messi

Getafe midfielder Lucas Licht admits Sevilla winger Jesus Navas gave him more trouble this season than Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

"The truth is that the victory over Barcelona (on Sunday) was a dream for me," said Licht. "Everyone in Argentina saw it on television and it went perfectly.

"I was happy to have De Sousa alongside me, because hand-to-hand combat with Messi is impossible. He is the best.

"However, Jesus Navas earlier this season was impossible to control. There was no way to stop him. He has given me the most problems this season."

Licht added: "I have ambitions to play for a big club. But I am also conscious that I must repay the faith Getafe has shown in me."
