Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has said that he has ‘run out of words’ to describe the performances of Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.
The Catalan playmaker turned in another eye-catching showing in midweek as Barca thumped Valladolid 5-1 at the Camp Nou. Messi scored two goals, one of them a brilliant free-kick, and provided a further two assists.
Valverde has continued to praise his player, suggesting his displays are amongst the very best.
He said: “What else can be said about him? I’ve run out of words.
“We always know that he will appear, whatever the match.
“His talent isn’t comparable to anything, the reality is that every time he touches the ball, something special happens. I just don’t know what to say.”
Following the match, Messi now has four goals and as many assists in La Liga for this season alone and that’s in just as many starts, having been ruled out in the early weeks of the campaign with a foot injury.
He is the favourite to once again be right at the top of the goalscoring at the end of this season and can be backed at a price of 10/11 with Paddy Power to score the most goals in La Liga.
