By that I meant learned languages not native to him.

And Messi doesn't but Barça fans found a way to rationalise that too.

From the Catalunya sub

Interesting that Dani Alves learned to speak Catalan lol, thought it's harder for a Brazilian to learn Catalan since Spanish is closer to it.

not a surprise! That part of speaking Catalan to other Spaniards is more about the distain of the separtists than language. Most regions in Spain have their local language / dialect and is spoken often and freely, but when it comes to other regions of Spain, proper Spanish is used. It would be an insult to speak the local language to them.

I asked the question re Messi as to my knowledge, most conversations in Barcelona are in catalan and I would have thought all players would speak it. Granted in interviews etc that are broadcast throughout Spain, it would be normal (and right) practice to speak in Spanish.

The reference to Alves is comical given his now presence in the Cartel. But you are right, The change from Portuguese to Spanish is more difficult than to an Argentino Spanish to Catalan. btw, an Argentino not speaking proper Spanish is common. Actually we make fun of them.

When I first moved to the US, I went to Los Angeles. Frankly, the Spanish spoken by the locals there felt like another language. Similar to Canadians speaking French... just wasn't quite the same thing.
