Lionel Messi Trash-Talk Opponents In The Dressing Room Before Games - Yaya Toure

Manchester City's midfielder, Yaya Toure has revealed that his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi has a habit of singling out players to humiliate while they're still in the changing room.

He told Mirror that:

"We played against [Barça] in the last Champions League. In fact, we've played against them in the last two seasons. Last year in the dressing room he told me he was going to nutmeg me. He'd done that before, say he was going to do it to one guy or another.

"I saw him nutmeg two of my team-mates and was so scared he'd do it to me. Whenever he came near me I screamed inside 'please not me, don't nutmeg me'. I was afraid he'd embarrass me in front of my family."

He continued to talk about Messi, saying that the Barcelona star is on a different level of natural talent to long-time rival for the title of 'best in the world' Cristiano Ronaldo - claiming that while Ronaldo works non-stop to be the best that he can be, Messi has another gear due to his 'natural genius'.

"The best player I have played with is Messi. I'll tell you something, I once heard Patrice Evra and Carlos Tevez say that Cristiano Ronaldo works really hard, but Messi is different. Messi is a genius. It's natural. In training he's simple. He's very good with the ball. He's always with the ball, but he never does anything crazy. He's thinking about the game."
