Stephan El Shaarawy: 'Messi is the best player in the whole world'
Roma winger reflects on the upcoming games and reckons Leo Messi is the best right now
On Roma's plan against Barcelona
"We know that it'll be very tough to play against Barcelona at the Camp Nou but we have nothing to lose. We have to try to show our spirit, work hard and capitalise on any chances we get."
"We have to be mindful that the tie is played over 180 minutes. We'll have to try to get a good result in Barcelona while remembering that there's still the home leg to come."
On Lionel Messi
"We'll have to be alert in terms of how they knock the ball about, keep possession and the moves that Messi comes up with. He's the best player of the lot at the moment, and I'm not just talking about Barça but the whole world."
"We're up against the very best and every time he gets on the ball, he can make something happen. That's why we'll have to try to act accordingly and restrict his influence as much as possible."
Who will decide the match if Roma surprisingly manage to stop Messi?
