Enrique - Messi is the best in the world at any position | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper


Barcelona manager, Luis Enrique, has claimed Lionel Messi is the best footballer in the world, no matter the position he plays on the field.

The Argentina captain scored a hat-trick, as Barca thumped Celtic 7-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Although Neymar scored one and provided four assists, with Luis Suarez also getting a brace, Enrique reserved special praise for Messi.

“Messi’s the best in the world in every position,” he said in his post-game news conference. “He plays with complete freedom to change his position as he wants.

“If he plays as a No.9, No.8 or No.6, he’s the best No.9, No.8 or No.6 in the world. He can judge the perfect pass from 40 yards; he can put the ball wherever he wants. For me, he’s the best player of all time.”
