Frenkie de Jong heaps praise on Messi

Frenkie de Jong and Lionel Messi made headlines in Barca’s 3-2 victory at Real Betis on Sunday evening, with amazing performances.

Despite Barca trailing twice at the Benito Villamarin Stadium, they were able to get maximum points in a match that will for sure go a long way in deciding the title at the end of the season.

Messi had a hattrick of assists and speaking to AS, De Jong said: "It's easy to play by his side because he gives you balls into space, it's not that I have a special connection, but he gives you good balls in space.

"It was very important to win the game and that was not easy, although in the end we could have won by more goals, for the penalty they didn't give Messi. It was clear, he caught him and pushed him.

As is stands now, Messi has contributed 14 goals and 11 assists from just 18 outings in Spain's top flight this season.
