Abdulai Sabit has revealed it was a great experience playing with Lionel Messi on the same pitch. Abdulai is currently playing for Getafe. While speaking to BBC Sports Africa Sabit said, “Before the Barcelona match, I had the feeling that I was going to get maybe five to ten minutes playing time but when the coach made the selection, he kept one or two best midfielders on the bench. So, I told myself maybe even if there were going to be substitutions it would be them because they’re the starters.”
“When we went for half-time in the dressing room the coach mentioned my name that I should go and warm up. I was surprised. I can’t even describe it. I was overwhelmed. When the referee whistled for the start of the second half my mind was focused on the game but when I was getting close to Lion Messi, I was asking myself: is this Messi I am going to meet? I couldn’t believe it. Although the results weren’t good for us, I felt happy playing against such kind of a player,” Abdulai Sabit revealed.
According to Sabit, he did his best during this game. He said that he is waiting for his team to decide.
