Lionel Messi was a tyrant in training - Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman reveals

 Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman has revealed that former player and club legend, Lionel Messi was like "a tyrant" during training at Barcelona.

At Barca, Messi developed into one of the greatest to ever play the game before departing to join Paris Saint-Germain this year. Koeman has now lifted the lid on the conduct of Messi during practices with the team, revealing he would get very angry if he lost during training sessions. "Lionel Messi has obscured everything. He was so good and he won," Koeman told Voetbal International. Messi was a tyrant in training - Barcelona coach, Koeman reveals "Of course he had good players around him, but he made the difference. Everyone seems better than they are because of him. This is not a criticism, but an observation. "I knew how good he is, but it's still nice to see it up close every day. Everything you would like to teach a football player, in recognising situations, in taking the ball under pressure, in ball speed, in finishing; with Messi everything is a 10. Not normal, not normal! "When we did a finishing practice during training, there were sometimes players who started to hit easy balls, a bit of fooling around. But with Messi everything was: boom, boom, boom, boom. Never frills, everything functional. And always wanted to win everything. "We always play a rondo before training. If the ball goes around 20 times, then the players in the middle must have an extra turn. If that happens three times in a row, the players will form two lines and the two who were in the middle then walk through and get taps on their heads and such.
"I asked Messi if it had happened to him once. ‘Yes, once,’ he said. In all those years. With him, the older players never lost an exercise against the young. It happened once and Messi was seriously angry about that for a week. Really, a tyrant." Koeman also admitted that Messi's absence has been noticed since he left to PSG in the summer saying players like Ansu Fati, are not training with the same intensity as they did in the presence of Messi. “When I first became coach, I had a conversation with him at his house in Castelldefels. What immediately struck me was how involved he felt and how much he is interested in football. "The start was difficult, he later apologised for that. Messi must have the idea that there is a future in what he does. But he started to get more and more enthusiastic. "The performance with Messi is perfect. We now sometimes do a pass and kick practices, where you had to shoot the ball into a small goal, around a post. The other day I saw Ansu Fati shoot three metres wide, simply due to lack of concentration. But he wouldn't have done that if Messi had still been there. Then he got set right, Messi became furious. That never happened to [Messi]. "I have never met anyone except Johan Cruyff with his football intelligence. Alfred [Schreuder, Koeman's assistant] sometimes explained the exercises in English and Messi does not speak that very well. But after a few seconds he knew it. "He delivered 50 goals last year: 30 goals, 20 assists. He was an example for the players. When we won the cup, Messi had won so many trophies, bigger than this one, but you saw that the Copa del Rey really did something for him this time. With those young players in there, he saw the future of the club. All those guys wanted to take a picture with him, I've never seen anything like it. "That's how big he was and is. It was a shock to the whole town that he's not here now."?????
