Mallorca youngster Kevin Garcia not afraid to kick Barcelona ace Messi

Real Mallorca youngster Kevin Garcia is ready to get rough with Barcelona star Lionel Messi this weekend.

Garcia is expected to man-mark the Argie superstar and refuses to be intimidated.

"He's the best player in the world, but my game is to try to stop him. I must not leave gaps, I have to stay focused the whole match and not give him even one metre," said the midfielder.

"If I have to kick him, I will, but we must not go too aggressively. Football is a contact sport and when I get kicked, nothing happens.

"We are all players, not only Messi or Cristiano, who are always in the media."
