David Villa doesn't believe Messi has a best position on pitch

David Villa, former Barcelona player, has expressed his opinion about Messi’s position on the field.

He believes that Messi will be excellent in any position on the pitch – even if he’s a goalkeeper. There is no one single position that the Argentinian star is best suited for – he is good at all. 

Villa further recalls about the time when he first came to Barcelona and was playing next to Messi – and what people told him about Messi.

“I don’t know who said this but they said ‘Messi is Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi – and even Sergio Busquets if you want’,” Villa said.

“When I heard it, I thought, ‘That’s my thought as well’. If you ask me what’s his best position, I don’t know.

“He’s not a number nine but the top scorer. He’s not a number 10 but he’s the top assist provider. He’s not a tall guy but he scores headers – he’s good at everything.

“We were thinking sometimes he’s not shooting well with the right foot, then he scores amazing goals with the right foot. I think that he played as a keeper one time and he did well.

“That’s the reality of Messi. Everyone knows he’s a quiet guy. He’s very normal in the dressing room and on the field.”
