Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi has hailed Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar, as a “phenomenon”.
Messi said that he is still in contact with Neymar, his former Barcelona team-mate, as well as his current strike partner, Luis Suarez.
The Argentine captain also revealed he is in a WhatsApp group with both Neymar and Suarez.
“I have a group on WhatsApp where we are – Suarez, Neymar and me,” Messi told Fox Sports Argentina on Friday.
“Neymar is a phenomenon and yes, we continue to talk. The name of the group has something to do with South America … ‘The Three Sudacas’ or something like that.”
Messi, Neymar and Suarez won three Copa del Rey trophies, two La Liga titles and a Champions League together at Barcelona.
The trio formed one of the world’s best attacks for three seasons at Camp Nou before Neymar moved to PSG in 2017.
