Former Indian skipper and current coach of India A and U-19 teams, Rahul Dravid is a die-hard football fan. He has been seen in attendance during some of the matches of Indian Super League. Meanwhile, Dravid witnessed the marquee La Liga clash between FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

He was presented with a customized Barcelona jersey on his visit to the historic venue. Dravid shared his experience about watching the match, which was posted by the Catalan club on their official Facebook account.

"It's incredible, it's a huge honour, it's one of the things I've always wanted to do - come to Camp Nou and watch a football match. To be here and experience the atmosphere, it's absolutely electric," said Dravid.

He hailed Lionel Messi for his performance. "To be able to watch players like Messi and Suarez play live, it's fantastic for me and my family. Thanks to Barcelona FC for the hospitality, it's been excellent," Dravid said.

"He's an absolute genius. It's incredible to watch what he does and to watch him live... One thing to see with Messi is how fantastic he is with the ball but it is incredible to see how good he is without the ball and how he is able to find spaces. I don't think there's been a better player than him ever. It's fantastic to watch him live," the 46-year-old added.
