The former Barça player commented Barça-City for Sky Sports
Former Barça player Thierry Henry was one of many viewers who watched Messi's show against Manchester City live. The Frenchman is currently commentator in the British television Sky Sports and was the Camp Nou to analyze the match with the English club. In their evaluations, he included comments on the Argentine striker:
- 'I'm sad for him, and upset because people doubt him sometimes,' said Sky Sports pundit Henry. 'They doubt him. How can you doubt a guy like that?
- 'He put himself on a level where it's impossible for me to hear people doubting this man. What he has done we should all enjoy the guy, like we did tonight. It is a pleasure.
- 'He has an ego. Of course he has an ego. Do you think you do that without having an ego? It's not a bad thing. Having an ego is not a bad thing. Knowing that you are good. You need that.
- 'Let's all be honest. You need that. He just plays. If you ask him to play with you now just outside the dressing room, he will just want to have fun, perform and be the best out there.'
