Lionel Messi has given a big interview to Marca where he’s talked about a range of topics including Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and team-mate Ousmane Dembele.

The Barcelona captain reckons the young Frenchman has the world at his feet and has already learned from mistakes made in the past.

“It’s up to him where he wants to go. He could be the best in the world. He’s young and adapting.

“The less you talk about this [his off pitch antics], the better. He has already realised his mistakes. He’s a very good lad, has changed and we will help.”

Dembele has been in great form this season with 10 goals in all competitions already as well as four assists for Barcelona.
