Messi Was ‘Tyrant’ to Barcelona Teammates in Training, Claims Manager Ronald Koeman

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has revealed that superstar Lionel Messi was literally “a tyrant” in during his days with the club as the Argentine maestro urged his teammates to be the best in the world. Messi hated losing, even in practice, the Dutchman claimed.The striker, who joined Camp Nou as a 3-year-old in 2000, went on to become one of the best players in the world, and arguably the greatest of all time. In Spain he set the pace for his teammates in both and during matches. “Lionel Messi has obscured everything. He was so good and he won,” Koeman told Dutch outlet Voetbal International.Lavishing rich praise on Messi, Koeman praised his commitment as he claimed that the former Barcelona forward would achieve a “perfect 0″ in all the departments of the game.”I knew how good he is, but it’s still nice to see it up close every day. Everything you would like to teach a player, in recognising situations, in taking the ball under pressure, in ball speed, in finishing; with Messi everything is a 0. Not normal, not normal!,” Koeman added.The former Netherlands international insisted that Messi never made light work of his sessions – he was extremely focused on achieving his goal, which was to win everything.”When we did a finishing practice during , there were sometimes players who started to hit easy balls, a bit of fooling around. But with Messi everything was: boom, boom, boom, boom. Never frills, everything functional. And always wanted to win everything,” Koeman explained.”We always play a rondo before . If the ball goes around 20 times, then the players in the middle must have an extra turn. If that happens three times in a row, the players will form two lines and the two who were in the middle then walk through and get taps on their heads and such,” he stated. “I asked Messi if it had happened to him once. ‘Yes, once,’ he said. In all those years. With him, the older players never lost an exercise against the young. It happened once and Messi was seriously angry about that for a week. Really, a tyrant,” the Barca manager concluded.However, with Messi now plying his trade for PSG, Barca have struggled in La Liga, where the team is “languishing” in seventh spot.Messi, himself, is also failing to live up to expectations and is yet score for the French club in three appearances for the Ligue club this season. Messi suffered another setback on Tuesday, when PSG announced that he has sustained a left knee injury and is set to miss Wednesday’s game against Metz. Moreover, his participation in Saturday’s match against Montpellier and the Champions League clash against Manchester City next week is also in doubt.

Alba970 sounds more like Messi was a winner and wanted his team mates to be the same by bettering themselves on the field … not the actions of a tyrant … they were and still are paid crazy money every week to be professional ers any true pro want’s to improve his/her abilities 0
