“Messi would not score up to 30 goals if he played in Serie A” – Van Bommel

Former AC Milan midfielder, Mark van Bommel, has revealed that his former team mates at AC Milan, believe that Lionel Messi would not stack up so many goals, if he played in the Italian Serie A.

The Barcelona superstar had a quiet night on Wednesday, as Massimiliano Allegri’s men defeated the Catalans 2-0, in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash.

“Three quarters [of the changing room] thought he would score definitely less [than 30 goals a season in Serie A],” Van Bommel told Algemeen Dagblad.

“And that’s me included, yes. Serie A is just a very different approach to football. You can still neutralise sides like in no other league.

“It was only last year that Messi scored his first goal against an Italian club. This is no coincidence.”
