Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and his counterpart, Sevilla's Unai Emery were united in their praise of Leo Messi after the Argentine star broke the La Liga goal-scoring record on Saturday.
Speaking after Barca's 5-1 romp over Sevilla, Enrique told reporters that he had no doubt that the 27-year-old was the best player to have ever graced the game.
"There are plenty of Messi goals that I like. For years I've said I've not seen a player like this. He is unmatched by any player I've ever seen," said...
Lionel Messi scored his first hat trick of the season and made history as he fired Barcelona to a resounding 5-1 win at home to Sevilla.
The Argentine's treble took him past former Athletic Bilbao forward Telmo Zarra's mark of 251 goals and on to 253. They have come in just 289 games.
The 27-year-old opened the scoring with a sensational free-kick to draw level with Zarra, but his strike was cancelled out by Jordi Alba's own goal at the start of the second half.
