Ghanaian international Kevin-Prince Boateng is in cloud after training alongside with Lionel Messi on the same field.
There were doubts over Messi being part of the Barcelona squad of the game against their sworn-rivals.
And according Boateng, who is yet to play alongside Messi in a competitive fixture said sharing the same pitch with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is a magical feeling.

The former AC Milan made this comment ahead of Wednesday's February 6, 2019, Copa del Rey first leg tie against Real Madrid.
“I can honestly tell you that playing against Messi is very difficult. But seeing him now on the field is magical. He can do everything on his own, it is incredible," he said.
He gate-crashed the January transfer window by joining the Spanish giants.
Boateng made his debut for the Catalan club in their 2-0 loss to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey quarter-final first leg last month.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported a story about Boateng saying that he believes in the Almighty God but he is not too religious.
He revealed that even though he may not be so much into praying, he wants his son to be very religious.
