PSV coach Van Bommel admits making Messi request of his players

PSV Eindhoven begin the Champions League season against Barcelona.

The 23-year-old will be travelling with PSV to the Camp Nou for their Champions League clash with Barcelona tomorrow.

The Mexican worldwide starred for his country at the World Cup and that is said to have draw interest from clubs around Europe.

"I had several posters in my room, one of Barcelona". My agent told me there was interest from Barcelona. "I dream of one day playing at Barça, but for now I think only of PSV".

"It's a dream come true", he said.

The Cleveland Browns will have a new kicker on Thursday night when the team takes on the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium. In the Dolphins' preseason, Joseph made 3 of 3 field-goal attempts in four games, but Miami went with Jason Sanders .

"I don't care who gets his shirt after the game", he said. "I am going to enjoy it".

The Dutch side's good work was undone in the 32nd minute, however, when, following a foul on Ousmane Dembele, Messi stepped forward, caressed the ball over the defensive wall and beyond a despairing Jeroen Zoet.

PSV coach and former Netherlands and Bayern Munich captain Mark van Bommel has given his players the green light to "fight for Messi's shirt" at full-time.

"That is part of being a professional, to always be concentrating. But the only thing I have asked of them is not to ask for his shirt at half time".

He added that Barca were more than a one-man show.

Despite Messi's exalted status, Barcelona have won only one of the last five Champions Leagues.

"He is the best player in the world, (the best) in the history of the game".
