Messi always wants to assassinate goalkeepers – Caballero


Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, “goes out to assassinate the goalkeeper” when he is on the pitch, according to Willy Caballero, who says his compatriot is forever on a “mission” to find the target.

Messi has netted a remarkable 663 goals for Barca, breaking several records along the way.

Chelsea keeper Caballero has lined up against and alongside Messi down the years.

He told 90min: “Facing Messi, I had to suffer.

“He goes out to assassinate the goalkeeper.

“The goalkeepers, the defenders – he’s going to kill [them]. And killing means scoring as many goals as possible.

“He doesn’t care if you know him, if you’re Argentine or if you’re a friend. He’ll talk to you afterwards, greet you and everything else, but in those 90 minutes he’s on a mission to hit you with goals.”
