“If you look at the technical ability of a player like Wayne Rooney, he is as good as any player in Europe,” says Messi.
“Rooney has exceptional quality. Not just great technical ability, but also works very hard for his team.”
The Barca genius, who’ll be 28 this month doesn’t expect to become a future team mate of the England skipper at the Nou Camp.
“I’m sure Manchester United will never want to let him leave.”I made that last quote upHowever, Messi said he agrees with some bloke of the internet that Rooney slows down United's attacking play, and even suggests dropping him "I think Alex Ferguson saw this coming, this is why he tried to sell him, you can see he is on the decline, he contributes nothing to the counter attack and actually slows down play"
Messi, what does he know about foosball!
