The ex-Real Madrid star Fernando Redondo spoke how he admires the Barcelona footballer and what does it mean for the Blaugrana to have his abilities.
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been in great form so far in the 2018-2019 season for Spanish La Liga club Barcelona.
The Argentinean has scored 33 goals in 32 appearances for the Blaugrana, with 11 assists on his personal account.
And now, he is getting ready to play against Real Madrid in the first El Clasico to be played in four days: The Copa del Rey Semifinal second leg.
“He makes everything different,” former Real Madrid star Fernando Redondo told Goal.
“He is the one that unbalances things at any moment, he does it with assists, with a shot from far, close, with a drive, with a cross.”
“It is really out of series. I will not tire of praising him,” he added.
Redondo also spoke about his former club, where another Argentinean, Santiago Solari, is trying to shine.
“Being a Real Madrid coach requires managing the changing room and imposing your ideas,” he said.
“Santiago is very intelligent, he is capable, he knows the club and, despite having taken charge in a complicated moment, he is leading it in the best way. We will see what happens at the end.”
“I would like to play with Modric and Kroos at the sides, but Casemiro is necessary because he brings balance,” he said as he explained his best team.
“As we said before, the most important thing is the form and model of a team and how it is compensated. That is the great challenge of a coach’s vision.”
Fernando Redondo played for six years in Real Madrid, from 1994 to 2000.
He also played for Argentinos Juniors in his native country, for Tenerife in Spain, and for AC Milan in the Italian Lega Serie A.
