"It will be a dream come true for me when I grace the pitch at the Camp Nou".

"I did well at the World Cup and many clubs came for me". Lozano said of several football-related posters he had in his room as a child, one was dedicated to Barcelona.

PSV Eindhoven begin the Champions League season against Barcelona. "I never thought I would".

"Barcelona's interest during the summer?"

"I try to work hard regardless of my position and I work hard on every aspect of my game, I feel more of an attacking midfielder and I am comfortable on the left as this is where I've played the most".

"Messi, like all of us, is really motivated to win big things (this season), and the Champions League is one of them". "I am going to enjoy it".

PSV coach Mark van Bommel, who played alongside Messi during his one season as a Barca player in 2005-06, says he still counts Messi as the world's best and added, should they win, his players can fight it out for the Argentine's shirt on Tuesday.

"If tomorrow we get a good result, I don't care if they fight for Messi's shirt", Van Bommel told a news conference on Monday.

Barcelona lost to Roma in the quarterfinals of the tournament, blowing a 4-1 aggregate lead from the first leg. Lionel Messi & Co. are coming off a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad in a La Liga match Saturday and will look to get their Champions League campaign started on the right foot in what is a treacherous group. Van Bommel, knowing that some of his players likely will be star struck, also emphasised that his players need to be "professionals" about it and not ask Messi for his shirt at half-time, like others have done in the past.
