Malcom hasn’t played for a while and opened up on coping with his injuries and life at Barcelona too.

The Brazilian was quick to mention that Messi’s quality makes it easy to put some problems on him..while taking some on himself as well.

In an interview with Marca, Malcom was asked if Messi covers up the problems at Barcelona.

Does Lionel Messi’s quality cover up the problems at Barcelona?

“Yes, some of them, yes. But with Leo, there’s [Luis] Suarez, [Antoine] Griezmann, [Ivan] Rakitic, [Frenkie] De Jong, Arthur [Melo], [Arturo] Vidal… lots of other players, too. “

“It’s not just Leo, it’s the whole group. Leo is the best player in the world; sometimes he does crazy things and helps Barcelona out a lot. That’s why sometimes when they speak about Barcelona, they speak about Leo. “

“It’s normal because of everything he does”.

Malcom is happy with life in Russia and is hopeful of overcoming his injury struggles soon enough.
