Manchester City

new signing

Julian Alvarez

has expressed his delight at the chance to play alongside

Lionel Messi

in Argentina, claiming he is a unique player on the pitch.

Many believe that Messi is the best player in the history of football and has achieved exceptional achievements and performances during his football career. Alvarez believes that Messi is a very unique player on the field and he always tries to learn from the star of Paris Saint-Germain.

He said:

“It was a dream come true to play by his side and a great source of pride to play with one of the greatest footballers in the history of the game, I have to say.

“It is hard to copy him. But like everyone who is around him, I watch his every move, watch every little piece of skill, and I try to take the best from it. But the truth is that he is unique, not just on the pitch but off it as well.”

Alvarez, who joined City in the summer, is seeking advice from recently retired club legend Sergio Aguero about working under Pep Guardiola and playing in the Premier League.

He added:

“Sergio told me some things about what it is like to work under Pep e told me about how the training is run at City. He told me about the city of Manchester itself. I spoke to him at the time of my signing and again during the last few days and weeks as well.

“He has given me all kinds of different advice, all of which I obviously listened to very carefully with this being a new world for me moving to Manchester. I wanted to listen to everything Sergio said so that I could adapt as quickly as possible to life in England.”
