Messi Calls Guardiola and Enrique 'Best' Managers

Lionel Messi has hailed former Barca boss Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique as the best managers.

He admits that Guardiola has been one of the best managers he has played under and the Barcelona star regards himself quite lucky to have got the chance.

“Pep has something special, he makes you see things in a [different] way,” the six-time Ballon d’Or winner said .

“How he prepared the matches, defensively, how to attack, he told you exactly where the game was, how you had to attack to win.

“I was lucky that I had a lot of time with Guardiola and Luis Enrique, the two best. Having them [for so long] made me grow a lot in football and in the tactical wisdom that they taught me.”

Messi also showered praised on Barcelona goalkeeper Jan Oblak, calling him the ‘best goalkeeper’.

“It’s nice to face one another,” the 33-year-old told Bud Football . “He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the moment, and it’s always good to fight against the best ones.

“It’s an extra motivation to be able to, or to try to, score a goal, with what it means and how hard it is, as he proves in every game he plays.

“So, it’s nice to see him outside but also face him in the games. It makes them more exciting.”
