“I think Messi showed that he is the best. The first goal was unbelievable. He deserves the important role in this team that he gets,” the coach told Marca.
“You can’t say more than that. Messi has shown this level for many years, he has shown it in many matches. He is the most important man in Barca’s history. It’s lucky he’s still with us.”
Yesterday, the Argentine played his 767th match for Barcelona and matched Xavi’s record for the most games played for the club.
