Man City whiz Manu Garcia starring with NAC Breda: I play like Messi?

Manchester City whizkid Manu Garcia is winning great praise on-loan at NAC Breda.

Garcia is drawing comparisons with Lionel Messi thanks to his form in Eredivisie.

"It is great that they compare me with him, but that is impossible. I felt like Messi for a while. If 20,000 people are singing to you that way, it gives you a great feeling," García told FOX Sports.

Garcia hit a wonder goal reminiscent of Messi in the 6-1 rout of Heracles Almelo on Wednesday.

"I saw the room and just walked in. When I had the idea that I could finish the ball, I did that.

"It is clear that this is one of the most beautiful goals I have ever made. It was also an important goal for us, it took the pressure away," continued the Spaniard.

"It is awesome. There has been a lot of criticism that we do not decide any games and we have done that now. We are very happy. I'm enjoying this period in Breda, there have been many ups and downs this season. At this moment things have become more stable."
