Video: ‘There Is No More Friendship’ – Ilaix Moriba Comments on Playing Lionel Messi in the Champions League

The UEFA Champions League group stage will see Paris Saint-Germain face RB Leipzig, which will be a reunion of two former FC Barcelona teammates in Lionel Messi and Ilaix Moriba. 

Moriba spoke to the media during his presentation as the newest Leipzig player, and one of the questions that he had to answer is the potential of facing Messi. Marca relayed the comments made by the 18-year-old, who states that once kick-off starts, all friendships are out the window. 

“It is any child’s dream to play with Messi. What he has done is incredible,” Moriba said. “The best thing was that he is such a good person, he tries to help young players.

“When we play each other, we will shake hands, but when the game starts, there is no more friendship. We will defend our clubs, and I will give everything for Leipzig.”

PSG will face Leipzig on Oct. 19th and Nov. 3rd in the Champions League group stage.
