Many people say that it is very easy to play with them (Lionel Messi, Neymar & Luis Suarez). I don’t agree. They are players of a different level and, if we play for them, it is because they have earned it but that does not mean it’s easy - and if I have to run 5,000 kilometres for one of them to have their best moment, I will do it. We do it.
