"That's why there is also a Nobita who asks him to solve everything"
FC Barcelona's president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, joked about his nickname, Nobita, how some Barça players call him due to his similarity with this character from the Japanese anime 'Doraemon.' In an interview at the local TV of Barcelona, with questions prepared by kids, Bartomeu also said that "Messi is the Doraemon [the cosmic cat which always have machines to solve it all] that solves all the problems."

"I guess they call me Nobita because I look like him... or maybe because we have a Doraemon in FC Barcelona called Messi, who solves all the difficult situations. That's why there's also a Nobita who asks him to solve it all."
"It's difficult to think about better players than ours. We have exceptional footballers and no one is better than another."
"When he was younger, before coming to Barcelona, he was told where he would like to go and he said 'Barça.' Probably other clubs wanted him and couldn't take him."
