Lionel Messi is recapturing his best form for Barcelona, according to Ronald Koeman.
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman claims after a brace against Athletic Bilbao that Lionel Messi is slowly getting back to his best.
Messi scored twice at San Mames on Wednesday to go with Pedri’s goal, as Barca posted a 3-2 victory.
And Koeman feels that Messi, whom this season has netted 12 times in 20 appearances, is improving.
“Since the first day that I arrived at the club I think Lionel Messi has given everything,” he told a news conference.
“I haven’t been surprised by his quality because he’s obviously been showing how good he is for years. It’s possibly true that he’s been less effective than normal which is why there could have been doubts but he’s doing a lot better now, he feels comfortable at the moment and he feels up for the challenge.”
“That’s how I feel. But I think Messi is the one who can answer that best.”
