HILARIOUS! Ghana’s Alidu Seidu explains how he stopped Messi: ‘I caught and kicked his legs’

Clermont Foot defender Alidu Seidu has explained how he was able to stop Lionel Messi when his side met Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.

In a rather hilarious way, the 22-year-old said he had to grab Messi and sweep him from the floor because of how difficult it is to stop the Argentinean.

He added he had to intentionally hit Messi’s head with his knee and later say sorry because there was no way he could stop him.

“Messi really knows how to play football,” Alidu Seidu told Kumasi-based Pure FM. “I stamped the ball away from Mbappe and it went to Messi. I caught him and kicked him in the legs.

“He fell on the floor and I used my knee to hit his head and later said sorry,” he added while laughing.

The versatile defender has made 21 appearances for Clermont Foot last season in Ligue 1, playing as a center-back, left-back, and right-back.

Alidu Seidu made his Ghana debut at the 2022 Kirin Cup Soccer against Japan on June 10 before impressing against Chile four days later in the third-place playoff, where he was sent off later.
