From his experience twice dealing with the Argentine mega star, Inter Milan midfielder unwilling to be an enemy of Messi again in the future.
Stefano Sensi moved to Inter Milan last summer, so the midfielder also had the chance to make his debut on the European Champions League stage. He played six matches in the group stage this season along with La Beneamata.
Two of the six group phase matches are dealing with Barcelona. Both ended with defeats for Inter Milan, and it can be said that these two defeats left the Nerazzurri out of the European Champions League.
However, this fact does not necessarily make Stefano Sensi feel upset. Instead he was very pleased with the experience dealing with Barcelona, because of the admiration of the figure of Lionel Messi. According to him, Messi is one of the best players in history.
“It’s a pleasant feeling to deal with. “Like everything because he is one of the best of all time,” Sensi told Sky Sport Italia.
Over the past few weeks, Inter Milan have been heavily linked with the Argentinian mega star. The Nerazzurri are believed to be ready to pour large funds to buy Messi. Regarding these rumors, of course Stefano Sensi was on the side of the supporters.
“Messi at Inter? It would be better to make him a teammate than to face him [laughter], “he continued.
For information, Lionel Messi is still under contract at Barcelona until 2021. But indeed, there is a special clause in the contract that allows the player to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Only, the question is whether the charm of Inter Milan is able to attract the interest of a world best player six times like Messi?
What is clear, in terms of performance, Inter Milan has improved this season thanks to the cold hand of the new coach Antonio Conte. Stefano Sensi then lauds the impact brought by the former Juventus coach.
“Conte has given me an intensity that I had never had before. He helped me to ride with his mentality and now I have a different way of playing as mezzala,” he said.
