Luis Enrique: City's Sergio Aguero is good - but he's no Lionel Messi

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Stuart Holden examine Manchester City's chances of getting revenge against Barcelona in their Round of 16 Champions League tie.

Luis Enrique has praised Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero -- but stressed that he feels no player in world football is better than Lionel Messi.

Barcelona boss Enrique, looking ahead to the Champions League round of 16 clash between the two sides next year, said in the Manchester Evening News he felt Aguero was one of the game's top 10 players.

Messi's Argentina international teammate has scored 19 times in 20 matches for the Premier League champions this season, while Messi has hit 21 in 21...
