Despite the fact that whenever he’s played against English opposition in the Champions League he’s invariably done a number on them, one Manchester United fan believes that Barcelona’s Lionel Messi wouldn’t be able to hack it in the Premier League.
The ill-informed caller into talkSPORT had a argument that centred around the Argentinian not being able to handle the physicality of the central midfield role for a team in the English top-flight, until it was pointed out to him that Messi has a free role and doesn’t play central midfield.
“Messi won’t hack the #PL!” ?
“It’s the best league in the world. Ronaldo couldn’t hack it, so went & played abroad.”
This #MUFC fan is desperate for his side ??? to sign Lionel Messi on a free transfer.
