Valverde: Messi Is The Best

Ronaldinho Messi's better than Ronaldo & I'd love to play with him one more time

Ronaldinho Messi's better than Ronaldo & I'd love to play with him one more time

Messi suffered a muscular problem while away on global duty with Argentina at the end of March, ruling him out of friendlies against both Italy and Spain.

Ahead of Saturday's match, Valverde said he would have to assess whether his talisman needed resting against Leganes after the team's final training session, per Marca. Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona for a record 222 million euros last August, is widely regarded as the pair's heir apparent, having been voted the world's third best player in two of the past three seasons.

"But he's a player that wants to play, that needs to be active because that's when he feels best".

"We'll have to assess whether Messi needs to be rested".

Sergio Busquets is likely to sit the game out, though.

Brazilian Legend Pele claims fellow countryman Neymar is more like Lionel Messi than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Barca's victory over Leganes saw them equal Real Sociedad's record of 38 top-flight Spanish matches without defeat, a run that stretches back to April 2017. They are seven games short of becoming the first team to complete a 38-game Liga season unbeaten.

"No, we're not thinking about that", the coach said. "We remember in these cases and they're important figures, but we're already talking about achieving it - we have to win or draw tomorrow [Saturday]".

"It's a record which has been held by La Real for a very long time, which shows how tough it is to beat it". We have to go for it, knowing the difficulty, which is great, but the challenge is nice, let's see if we can compete there.

The Argentine played the full 90 minutes in midweek as his side crushed Roma 4-1 in the Champions League quarterfinals, playing a blinder as usual. As with three minutes remaining, the 30-year-old bagged his hat-trick after eventually receiving possession around six yards from the Leganes goal before lifting his attempt past the encroaching Cuellar to secure a potentially title-defining three points. "We've had to fight to reach this point and we're going to have to keep fighting like this until the very end - the same as our rivals". "Right now we are at the most exciting stage of the season but also the toughest part".
