The Brazilian signed for the Blaugrana over the summer, and has repeatedly spoken of his respect for the Camp Nou record-breaker.

And the youngster has claimed once more that he is proud to play with the 26-year-old, whilst also commenting on how he has settled in the Catalan capital.

“Messi is above all,” he told reporters. “I admire him, He is my idol. I respect him a lot.

“He has been the best player in the world for four times now, and he’s eager to do it again.

“My life in Barcelona is quiet. But I love how everything is going.

“I love the city, the club and the people I work with. Everything is perfect.”
