Lionel Messi

Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has admitted he only asked current Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane for his shirt.

Messi is regularly asked by his opponents to swap shirts at the end of games, but does not do so himself.

However, during one El Clasico fixture, during his early time at the Camp Nou, he played against Zidane and couldn't resist the opportunity to get the Frenchman's jersey.

"I don't ask for shirts, I usually swap them, but I asked Zidane once.

"If there is an Argentine I swap it with him, but, unless someone asks me, I'm not asking anyone," Messi told TyC Sports.
