Albert Roca was Rijkaard's right hand when the Argentinian made his debut
Leo Messi will meet again, this Saturday night, with one of the coaches that made possible his debut with Barça's first team. This was Albert Roca, El Salvador's coach, the team that will face Argentina in a friendly match.
Roca was the physical coach and Frank Rijkaard's advisor, he called the player to be on the friendly against Oporto on 2003 November, when he was 16. The second coach of El Salvador is Carles Cuadrat, who worked as Barça's youth team's coach.
Remember that Messi is doubtful to play tonight, since he has a little injury, that according to Martino "avoids him from training normally." The Argentinian watched the last training from the bench.
