What messi told the defender who man marked him... Read here

Meet Pablo Maffeo, the 20-year-old right-back who played against Lionel Messi on Saturday night.

Maffeo, who is on loan from Manchester City, was given the unenviable task of marking the five-time Ballon d'Or winner for 78 minutes during Girona's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona.

But despite the scoreline, Maffeo managed to keep the magician rather quiet during his time on the field.

Messi didn't manage to find the scoresheet and Girona only conceded three - far less than many expected before kick-off.

After the game had finished, Maffeo revealed what Lionel Messi spoke to him about during the game. Manchester City supporters may want to listen up.

In the post match interview, via MARCA, the 20-year-old said: "He asked me a couple of things, like if I was loaned by Manchester City, and how old I was."

"It was all good. I had to mark him and I had to be close to him and not watch the ball.

"It is difficult, not just from a football perspective, but also psychologically. I appreciate the trust the coach placed in me."
