Lionel Messi’ Barcelona teammate, Ivan Rakitic has finally opened up on why the Argentina superstar is somewhat shy.

Rakitic who unequivocally labelled Messi as the best in history explained the star's shyness in an interview with Antena 3.

"He's the reference. Our game depends a lot on him. He doesn't need to talk to understand, a gesture is enough," the Croatian told Antena 3.

"He is the best in history, capable of turning the game around in a second. He is shy because he knows that everyone is watching him."
