Sevilla winger Papu Gomez: Messi was interested in my Atalanta problems

Sevilla winger Papu Gomez has explained what was discussed with Lionel Messi after their Copa del Rey victory against Barcelona.

Gomez featured in the semifinal first-leg 2-0 win against Barca and caught up with his Argentina teammate at the final whistle.

He revealed, "We talked about life, he asked me what had happened to me at Atalanta and he told me that it had caught his attention to find me now in Spain.

"We did not speak anything strange, of my integration to the club, my arrival and little else.

"We love Leo very much, he is the captain of the Argentine team, and we want the best for him."
