The leader of “Barcelona” Lionel Messi recalled the transition in the Catalan club Thierry Henry in 2007:
“The first day when he came in the locker room, I didn’t dare look him in the eye.
I knew what he has achieved in England. I have by that time formed the image of him, and then suddenly we were on the same team.
So I expressed the admiration felt for him. I liked Henry, his ease with which he could take to the gate to score and kill the game in the match. He gave the impression, it is natural”.
Earlier it was reported that Messi was ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo on the total earnings for the season.
