To say Rafa Márquez is to have in mind one of the best defenders in the history of Mexican football, all because of the brilliant career he made at FC Barcelona.
In that institution he shared a dressing room with Lionel Messi and He told in an interview with TUDN the discussion he had with the Argentine and how Pep Guardiola had to intervene.
“They gave him the ball (to Messi) and he began to mock one and the other, he reached the goal and did not score, so you know that I don’t like to lose even in the marbles, I scolded Leo because he did not pass the ball and he didn’t score, he got angry, we started arguing, Pep comes in and shuts up Leo, and the fight is over, “said Márquez.
In the same way, he spoke of other topics such as Ricardo La Volpe, but it was not the best he had, that is how he defined Pe Guardiola and what he said about the others who directed him.
“I had very good coaches, from Ricardo La Volpe, Deschamps, Guardiola, it is difficult, but if I had to choose one it would be Guardiola, he is a perfectionist, how he poses the games, how I work every day, he works too much.”
