Despite the fact that he's kind of short, Lionel Messi scares many players.

As he prepares to compete in the Rio Olympics with the Seleção, the Brazilian found some free time to appear on TV. Guest of TV show "Programa do Jo" on TV Globo, Neymar talked about his social integration in FC Barcelona and his relationship with Lionel Messi. He actually made a surprising revelation :

"When I saw Leo for the first time in Barca, I was afraid. When I arrived and I walked into the locker room, there was Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Pique, Dani... they were all my idols. It was as if I was playing Playstation. Honestly, it was really hard in the beggining."

The player who trembled before Messi also took the opportunity to remind all the good he thought of Argentinean: "Soccer without Messi and Messi without soccer, it cannot work. When you love soccer, you always want to see the best players continue amazing us. "

As a reminder to those who were completely cut from civilization, Lionel Messi took his international retirement after the defeat of Argentina against Chile in the final of the Copa America. So will La Pulga make his come back like Zinedine Zidane did with France?
