It seems as though Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcântara is a hard man to impress as he named the only player who can make him go ‘wow’.
The Spanish midfielder moved from Barcelona to Bayern in the summer of 2013 and has become one of the best central players in world football.
While the player has been plagued with injury over the past couple of years, there is still no doubting his quality.
Though, while everyone is impressed by his quality on the ball, there are not many players that can fully impress the former Barcelona man.
Not even sides Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City can impress him to the point in which he is wowed.
In fact, there is only one man that can make stand up and take note – Lionel Messi.
‘Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man City… there are many teams you’d want to play against,’ the 26-year-old said.
‘But no team has impressed me. They are football players, like us. We just have to compete and see who is better at that moment.’
‘City are playing amazingly,’ the former Barca man admitted. ‘But I don’t think ‘wow.’ Only Messi makes me go ‘wow.”
Safe to say, Messi is a player who makes us all go ‘wow’ and he has impressed yet again this season.
Despite taking up a deeper role, the Argentine star is still leading in all of the most impressive statistics.
Whether he is set for his sixth Ballon d’Or is yet to be seen but he is certainly on his way to doing so.
