Zambrotta wants to win for Messi

Roger Bogunyà

Gianluca Zambrotta has said the team has to win on Sunday “for Messi”. The Italian commented that missing the Argentinian “is a shame because he is a very important player for the team”.

The Barça right back believes the team needs to stay strong in all three competitions and enjoy playing, among other games, the final in Moscow. But Zambrotta also says the absence of Messi “is a shame for football fans because he makes such a difference”.

Big game on Sunday

Bad luck at Calderón

What’s up with Madrid

Speaking about Real Madrid, he said “it is not normal for them to go out of Europe in the second round” but that his Roman compatriots deserved to qualify after beating Madrid home and away.
