Luis Enrique, Barca coach, did not want to join talks regarding the future of Lionel Messi, as he said that the Argentine – who recently broke a record – was the best player in history, something that many fans and bookmaker software services can fully agree on.
The 27-year-old star turned into the top scorer in La Liga after he was able to make a hat-trick in the 5-1 routing by the Catalan Giants of Sevilla on Sunday, in a game that impressed many fans and experts alike.
This week, the Argentine player did not say much at all about his future in the sport when he had an interview in his country with newspaper Ole, as he mentioned his wish to continue playing at Barca before saying that “things don’t always work out as you want them to”, something that left many worried fans, as they know that he’s the team’s talisman and could very well be one the best players in the history of the sport.
However, Luis Enrique did not want to assume anything at all, as he said that his main focus right now was on the ability that the Argentina captain has.
“I like living the present and this is marvellous with the best player of the history, to me, in our team,” the coach said.
“We are not going to feed the talking. I trust his quotes I have heard from him and we have to keep on working for improving and trying to raise our level for reaching titles, which is the target we work on.”
The player was able to open up the scoring when Barca took out Sevilla before he added two goals late in the game, and ended up breaking the 251 goal record made by Telmo Zarra.
Luis Enrique said that the striker was a very special talent in the sport, and many fans in every corner of the world can fully agree on this.
“Everybody has the clarity of telling I haven’t seen a player like Lionel Messi and I am fortunate for training and seeing him every day at the training field,” he said.
“And even sometimes he surprises you with some good performances. There is not comparison with other players I have seen along my life. He is unique.”
Messi’s fans all over the world wonder what’s next for him, and would really like to find out. Developments on the player will be closely monitored by bookmaker software services everywhere.
