Malcom Reveals He Recorded Footage Of Lionel Messi Applauding His Champions League Goal Against Inter

Malcom has Lionel Messi applauding his Champions League goal against Inter Milan on tape.

The Brazilian attacker opened his Champions League account for Barcelona versus Inter Milan, and he's recorded the moment Messi applauded his goal at San Siro.

"Messi is going to be considered the best after Pele," he said about his teammate. "I didn't think that before, but now that I've seen him closely, yes, I see how he works day by day and he is sensational.

"He never ceases to amaze me with the things he does. We know he can cut in from the left, but we don't know when, and then waiting for that exact angle, that exact moment.

"During the game he is looking at the defence, it's position and what he is going to do. It's amazing. It is a unique feeling to play with him.

"I have the day that Messi applauded my Champions League goal recorded, I will never forget it."

The Barcelona skipper has bagged an incredible 46 goals this season and Malcom reckons he's way above Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He [Cristiano] is one of the best in the world right now but I think Messi is way above him. I don't see him every day like Messi, but Messi is very natural. He can decide a match in two minutes," he added.

Malcom's played a bit-part role for Barcelona following his switch from Bordeaux.

He's scored just four goals and remains subject to intense transfer speculation ahead of the summer window.
