FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 27 December 22:19 GMT
Lionel Messi has opened up on facing criticism from his son’s if Barcelona loses or something goes wrong according to an interview and was open to Ajax duo Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie De Jong.
In an interview with Marca, Messi revealed of his family is the most important thing in his life and his young son’s interest in football and interesting criticism he gets from his eldest son.
“As soon as I had my children, the priority was always my family. It is the most important thing. Obviously, I love football and I live for it, but family is above all.”
“Ciro is just beginning to stand up. Antonella and I would like to have a girl but we’ll see, it’s still early.”
“They both like football a lot. Thiago understands more because he is older and discusses everything about the game. He is very involved.
“Yes, yes… I already have a couple of criticisms. He follows Barcelona, LaLiga Santander and the Champions League. He likes it, asks questions, reports and he tells me when things are not so good. ”
“It was before, but not now. It’s always hard to digest defeats and poor performances, but Thiago forces me to comment on what happened and explain why we didn’t win. We talk a lot more now.”
With reports stating that De Jong has agreed to a move to the Blaugrana and De Ligt also linked heavily with the club, Messi gave his seal of approval.
“They come from a school very similar to ours and they work in the same way. They play like us with the ball. They are young players with great precision, two very good players.”
