Messi revealed that the goalkeeper “terrifies” him when he faces him

Most goalkeepers, when faced with Messi, are almost powerless to prevent this striker from scoring. In 2020, Budweiser sent bottles of beer to 144 different goalkeepers who let Messi score in the net during his time with Barca.

Fraser Forster was also one of those honored to receive beer from Budweiser when he conceded a goal in Celtic’s 2-1 victory against Barcelona in 2012. Also in the second leg of the 2012 C1 Cup group stage, Forster caught main and lost 1-2 after Jordi Alba’s late goal.

But, this goalkeeper’s excellent performance left an unforgettable impression on Lionel Messi, who admitted that the Catalan team had intended to bring this goalkeeper to Camp Nou.

Speaking on the Daily Star, the seven Golden Ball winner said: “Fraser Forster’s performance in that match was really something we discussed all the time. I remember at that time the whole team had to go to Scotland to play and at that time he seemed like he wasn’t human anymore, he was the best goalkeeper in the world I had ever known. At that time Victor Valdes said he was leaving and the boys in the team expected Forster to come here. But I’m pretty sure Forster would prefer to play for Arsenal, Chelsea or MU.”

The only goal that Messi scored against Forster was at the end of the match (minute 90+1) and the British goalkeeper earned the nickname “Glasgow Wall” after the match with Barca when he had seven situations. save.
