Barcelona fullback Digne: Now I understand why Messi the best

Lucas Digne is thrilled with his first months at Barcelona.

The former PSG fullback has quickly settled at the Nou Camp.

Among all his teammates, Digne highlights the figure of Leo Messi:

"He is extraordinary. Playing alongside him, you understand why he is the best in the world. He does incredible things."

The defender explains what a training session is like with the Argentine:

"When he is on your team, you find yourself stopping and admiring the things he does. Of course, when he is on the opposing team, things get complicated because he is very, very quick."

The France international ends his dissection of Messi in a humorous tone:

"As we usually make teams with few players, he doesn't fully dribble or pass as quick. If not, it would be very tough."
