Rather than worrying over finding a solution, Pochettino has urged his players to enjoy the occasion.

Pochettino claims that playing against Messi is something players will tell their grandchildren in years time.

Pochettino said:

“I am not going to try to find a solution. I am going to say to the players: ‘Enjoy playing against Messi’.

“Because you are going to have the opportunity to play against one of the best players in the history of football.

“More than it worrying you, it needs to excite you to play and so you can say.

“This is the type of player that you are going to remember.

“For your ego, it’s a thing that you are going to tell your kids and grandkids.

“It’s difficult to find solutions to try to stop him, I promise you.

“I think it’s impossible. So you must only to enjoy it, be close, help the players that are going to face him.”
