Van der Vaart on Messi's performance: It makes me sad

Former Real Madrid and Netherlands international Rafael van der Vaart has criticized French side PSG's Argentine striker Lionel Messi for his performance against Manchester City.

Rafael van der Vaart went in even harder on Messi.

"It makes me sad," he noted.

"It's a question of desire. Does he want it or not?

"When you compare him to Cristiano Ronaldo, one is fighting to take his team to the next level - and one isn't.

"Messi walks now and then.

"I look at him and think, 'Aren't you ashamed?'

"I'm just getting annoyed with Messi.

"It already started a bit with Ronald Koeman [at Barcelona]. It was actually a refusal to work, that is not normal for such a player.

"And that's a shame, because a player like this will never be born again."
