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.”
