Manchester City legend, Sergio Aguero, has warned Benfica defender Nicolas Otamendi not to hurt Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi because he would kill him.
Aguero said this while reacting to PSG’s Champions League group stage draw against Benfica.
Recall that PSG was drawn in the Champions League Group H alongside Benfica, Juventus, and Maccabi Haifa.
The Champions League group stage will begin on September 6 and conclude on June 10, 2023.
However, Messi, who is in his second year at PSG, is set to lead the charge on both fronts this year with the Parisians in the Champions League and with Argentina in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Speaking on his Twitch channel, Aguero shared his thoughts about the recent Champions League draw and the potential confrontation between Messi and Otamendi.
Aguero said (via El Comercio): “PSG, Juventus, Benfica… Otamendi is going to have to put in a couple of kicks. Otamendi is at Benfica, so he is going to have to start hitting, and he’s going to cross it with Leo. Don’t hurt Leo, because I will kill you. The World Cup is coming, Ota.
He added, “Oh, you also meet ‘Fideo’ [Angel Di María] in Juventus. Oh, Otamendi. How bad we are seeing it with Otamendi. Otamendi has to hit a good kick to both players. Spicy.”
