The FC Barcelona theme continued when García, who will certainly be looking forward to the meeting between two of his former sides Barca and Real Valladolid on Saturday evening, was asked about his toughest ever opponent.

Simply put, the 20-time Spain international said: "I will have to say Lionel Messi."

García joined Real Valladolid from FC Barcelona on loan for the 1999-2000 season. Although he only played a handful of matches during his temporary switch, he still managed to experience one of his most significant career moments with the White and Violets

Asked for the most memorable moment of his career, García said: "I would have to say my first game with Real Valladolid. That day was very special, for my family and friends."
