While speaking on Peruvian TV, Xoana Gonzalez said: "It was many years ago. In truth he was very young. But he knew what he was doing, was not minor, that was the important thing... His security told me 'got someone you want to know'. I was curious to see who it was, and froze when I saw it was my idol Messi I froze... I said that he is the wimp, though because he sent his security to get me. There I noticed that he is very shy... We talked about music and cannot remember if he told me he had a girlfriend or not. After a while we went to his apartment in Puerto Madero."
"When one plays across the whole pitch, you expect someone to return the favour. I wanted him to show me more than that. At one point I felt like I was with a dead body."
