'It will be nice to share a changing room with an alien' – Pjanic on Barcelona icon Messi


Miralem Pjanic, Lionel Messi, Barcelona

Miralem Pjanicitching to playing alongside Barcelona captain Lionel Messi, stating that “it will be nice to share a changing room with an alien”.

It was a move that sparked the ire of Barcelona fans, with 30-year-old Pjanic effectively being traded off for a much younger Arthur, but Pjanic clearly cares little for the detractors as he prepares to line up next to “the greatest player of all time”.

“I've worked with some of the greatest players in the world. I've followed everything from the outside looking in but I couldn't see Leo anywhere other than in Barcelona,” midfielder Pjanic said, referencing Messi's recent admission that he wantedto leave Catalunya.

“He has done so much for this club and I always thought he would go out in style. There's always dissatisfaction after a defeat (8-2 loss to Bayern Munich) but this is his home and I can only see him here. It would be strange to see him with another shirt.

“He looks happy – he's the greatest player of all time. It will be nice to share the changing room with an alien.”

With Pjanic entering the latter stages of his career, he admits that he would have liked to have signed with Barca long ago, but made it clear that he will give everything to secure success for the club as they enter a new cycle.

“I would have liked to come to Barcelona when I was six years old if I could have! Since I was little it has been a dream to play here, playing for this club is extraordinary,” he said at his official unveiling as a Barca player on Tuesday afternoon.

“I'm very proud of what I've done, I'm at the biggest club in the world.

“When I entered the dressing room I felt the history and what this club aspires to. It's a great opportunity to play with all these great champions.
