The former Villarreal man laughed off the suggestions that his club mate would find it hard to play against Manchester City in their home soil.

The 22 year old former Manchester City man believe that Lionel Messi can play in a wet field and in a windy condition in stoke, ahead of their meeting with the Sky Blues in the champions league.

“Stoke test”it is a term it has been used by the British egghead by many years to test the caliber of the world’s top players, rumination whether they can still be feasible while coping with a combination of dusky weather.

Denis Suarez is confirming that the little Argentine can adjust with those conditions.

"Of course he could [perform]," he is quoted as saying in the Observer.

"He'd pick up the ball, dribble past three players and hit it into the top corner.

"I've seen him seen him do it here in the rain, I've seen him do it in the midday sun. 

"He does it where he wants, when he wants. Messi's unique. Put him in any team in the world and he'd be the best, just the same. And against English teams it usually goes OK for him."

Messi and his side Barcelona will face Manchester City in their next champions league match at the Etihad Stadium in their reverse fixture, in the first leg Barcelona tear apart their opponents at the Camp Nou by 4-0.

The 22 year old returning to his former club for the first time after he leaves the club in 2013,he thought that in now days under Guardiola Manchester city has lot of changes in their playing style and they are doing well also but they are not  yet on that level to be compared with the Barcelona.

"Barca is a role model for every club: everyone wants to play like them," the 22-year-old added. "Well, they can try. 

"Barca hasn't come about in two years. It's years of building an identity, staying faithful to a philosophy, the kids in the academy playing like the first team. City will try to do that. I know, I was there.

"They showed me the project, everything they wanted to do. They have the structure and the ability. Now they've signed a coach who'll help them do that.

"You can see that Pep's giving young players a chance. When I was there it was a bit different, it was the more physical players who went up to the first team. It was about strength.
