“I think maybe the era with Guardiola was one of the best for me as a player.”

Messi added: “My best goal was the one in (against Manchester United) in Rome with my head in the Champions League final.”

“The best coach I have had I think is Guardiola, the best of all of them, with Luis Enrique very close.”

“The English sides always have the strongest defences, “especially in recent years” and but the toughest side I have come across was the Spain side which won the Euros and the World Cup.”
