Varejao speaking to OLÉ
"I remember being at Barcelona when I was 18 or 19 years old. Messi... everybody talked about Messi, who was just 15. Everybody spoke about Messi. Also about Rafael Nadal".
"I thought Messi had to wait because Ronaldinho was playing in the same position. But they managed to play together and they were incredible. I am a Messi and Barcelona fan".
