Arnold Schwarzenegger compares Barcelona star to the Terminator

Unexpected fan

Arnold Schwarzenegger visited Barcelona this week and has compared one of their star players to the famous movie character The Terminator.

The Austrian-American actor is a name that is recognised worldwide and has continued his expansion during the Arnold Classic Europe bodybuilding competition.

This week Schwarzenegger took the event to Barcelona and has been soaking in the local atmosphere and even the football.

The celebrity actually used to play football but eventually turned his back on the sport in favour of continuing in bodybuilding.

That does not mean he turned his back away from watching it and he knows a player when he sees one.

Now, the film star has compared world and Barcelona star Lionel Messi to the famous Terminator.

“Messi is the football Terminator, we can say that,” he explained. 

“Yes, last year I visited and watched them train. It was fantastic. When you grow up with football you always have it in mind.”

“The European teams, in general, are very good and Barcelona is one of them obviously. The Madrid too.”

“Many of his players are among the best athletes, with tremendous stamina and speed.”
