Leo Messi scored a Panenka penalty last Tuesday against Getafe. In an interview with RAC 1, the inventor of this kind of penalty shot, Antonin Panenka, spoke about Messi's goal this week.
These are Panenka's best quotes in the interview:
- "When I saw the penalty I was surprised. I am proud he followed my example".
- "I love that some players like Ramos, Totti, Zidane.. and now Messi, have scored these goals".
- "Messi's goal is the most beautiful of all of them. Not too powerful, in the middle.. the ball flies".
