"We would always be together. We have a great friendship along with Messi.

"Besides the good relationship on the field, we also have a relationship off the field and this I think is the most important.

"I think it will be a great game, an amazing show for those who enjoy to watch football. And I will face my friend Suarez, who is a great player. I hope to win."
