SHAFAQNA –Lionel Messi is one of a number of Barcelona players who prefers a pizza as their post-match meal. The Catalans cater to the specific tastes of their stars, who give plenty of food for thought when it comes to meals after a match .A sheet with the dinner choices of the full squad was leaked to the press in the wake of their scoreless draw with Malaga on Wednesday and it seems the Italian dish is one of the favourites among the players.
Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Dani Alves and Luis Suarez are all also happy to sit back with a slice at the end of 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, centre-back Gerard Pique prefers a Nutella sandwich, with German goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen another who enjoys his post-game chocolate.
Ivan Rakitic and Rafinha favour the slightly healthier option of sushi when it comes to post-match victuals, while Javier Mascherano enjoys a simple pasta salad and fruit.
Finally, goalkeeper Claudio Bravo brings a new dish to the table as he requests a plate of pasta after each game.
