Mubarak Wakaso indicated that he was left stunned by a one-on-one encounter he had with Lionel Messi which had the Barcelona man having the better of the Ghanaian.
When asked how he took the drubbing, Wakaso said he was left in awe by the skill of Messi and was deeply pained that he had been used for 'advert' on the field of play.
The Black Stars talisman indicated that the said world-class dribbling encounter with Messi happened some 2 seasons ago and has always left him thinking about it.
However, Wakaso indicated that there was a time in his career that he brought the Argentine down on the field in an encounter.
He added that an encounter with Barcelona was a big deal and they had to ensure that they made the best of the day.
While speaking in the interview, Wakaso indicated that his Black Stars colleague Christian Atsu, always sends him the video of how Messi dribbled him and laughs at him over it.

This comment passed by the footballer caused laughter in the room as the interviewer and crew were heard laughing.
Lionel Messi is noted as one of the best footballers in the world and an encounter with him is always characterised by immense skills and beautiful goals that leave his fans, as well as his opponents in awe.
