Chelsea's Bosingwa reveals secret to silencing Barcelona's Messi

Chelsea fullback Jose Bosingwa has lifted the lid on how he silenced Barcelona star Lionel Messi last week.

Bosingwa revealed: "The key to stopping Messi? I studied his movements all day on video and I managed to show people you can stop him without kicking him.

"I am not the hero, I just did what I was asked to do. If I get the same order in London, I will repeat my work.

"Playing at left-back was unusual for me, but I was happy with my work."
