In an interview with Marca, Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi spoke about the signing of Brazilian right-back Dani Alves at FC Barcelona, ​​with whom he rubbed shoulders with the blaugrana jersey for eight seasons.

The six-time Ballon d'Or has admitted to being astonished to see him return to Barca in mid-November, but considers that he can bring a lot to his old home.

“The truth is, his return surprised me, mostly because of the timing. I think he can be a good element, just like in the case of Xavi, he can be important for young people. He will help them grow because he is a winner and he transmits a lot."

"He will do it with young people, both in matches and in training. Because he will also bring a lot off the pitch with his daily work, his commitment and the desire he still has to win,” he said of his former teammate in Catalonia.
