Jordi Alba reveals the secret to his successful partnership with Messi
Jordi Alba has massively stepped up and has taken the role of Dani Alves in Lionel Messi’s career.
The Brazilian remains the player who has given Messi the most assist in his career. But it has been almost two years since Alves left Barcelona, and Jordi Alba is making sure he overtakes the right-back.
Leo and Alba have formed the deadliest partnership in Spain at the moment and took their success to new heights on Thursday night against Celta Vigo.
In a fifteen minute spell in the first half, Alba setup two of Messi’s quickfire goals. And Leo returned the favor with an incredible defense-splitting pass in the 28th minute of the game.
Alba has assisted Messi in seven goals this season, while Alba has scored two goals from a Messi assist.
“Messi is the best player in history and the best in the world by a difference,” Alba said
“It’s a luxury to have him here. All Barça fans should enjoy him, as I think they are doing. He’s been here for 12 years playing at a spectacular level and this year he’s been even more incredible.”
“Personally, I think it’s great to play with him and we always look for each other.”
“We were able to both score and assist,” Alba continued.
“He is the best in the world by far, the best in history, and enjoyed by all the Catalans.”
“The team came out with very clear ideas and we were able to score two goals early.”
“I am very happy about the result.”
