"Barça won my heart with their incredible romantic style"
Steve Nash has been one of the best basketball players of the recent era but he has always shwon some affection for football. Last week he made the news because he trained with Majorca's first team, a club of which he is one of the owners after the millionaire Robert Saver bought it. In an interview to the daily As, Nash talked about this situation and also about Barça and Messi.
"Messi is the best player in history, more than Maradona, although many Argentinian fans don't agree with that."
"I think that in the current era it is more difficult to play because all the players are more professional, more athletic, more physical, and many South-Americans play in Europe. Before, there weren't many. For me, the game today is more difficult and that's why I think Messi is the best."
"I'm a Tottenham fan because my parents are from London but Barça won my heart because of their incredible romantic style."
Taste for football
"My dream was to become a football player but when I was 13, all my friends played basketball and there was no professional teams in Canada. However I really loved basketball as well and I was very lucky in my career."
"I'm very proud and it is a pleasure to work with a club which has 100 years of history. In the United States there aren't many things that can claim to be that old."
