Malaysia head coach K. Rajagopal has called fans to be realistic as his men come against fancied Barcelona which consist of world class players such as Lionel Messi, Cesc Fabregas and Neymar.

According to Rajagopal, he will be looking to lessen goals for Barcelona, prompting many to speculate that the Malaysian XI will play a very defensive game this Saturday.

During the same press conference, Cesc Fabregas whom was present, also stated that he is staying with Barcelona and that he wouldn’t want to pass off the opportunity to play with players like Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Fabregas also said that he will show ‘why he is the most sought after player’ this Saturday, while adding that he has no immediate plans to play in Malaysia when he retires because “he is still 26 years old, and has not thought of retirement”.

In a previous friendly last weekend, Thailand’s best eleven were trampled 7-1 by the visiting Barcelona side.
