Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo de Paul referred to Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi as a “extraterrestrial” in his description of the player.
With the Argentina national team, De Paul and Messi are international teammates.
Last December, the pair assisted Argentina in winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Together, they played in all seven of Argentina’s games as they defeated France in the championship game to win the trophy.
Speaking on El Larguero, De Paul, who was asked to give his views on Messi, said: “He’s an alien.
“When you think he is going to lose it, he comes away with it.
“When you think he doesn’t see you, he leaves you 1vs1 against the keeper.”
