Gerard Pique praises magical Lionel Messi

TEAMtalk :    Gerard Pique admitted Lionel Messi is a player who can ‘change everything’ after he stepped off the bench to help Barcelona reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

The Spanish side were heading out of the competition as they trailed Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 on aggregate following Javier Pastore’s 50th minute strike when Messi, who suffered a hamstring injury in the first leg, was thrust into the fray.

He immediately transformed a previously tentative home side and the equalised nine minutes after his introduction when the Argentina ace unlocked the PSG defence to find David Villa, who rolled the ball back into the path of Pedro to lash home.
