Barcelona earned a dramatic win in Madrid’s ‘Clásico’ with a Lionel Messi goal in stoppage time, the second of the Argentine in the game, and 500th overall wearing the Blaugrana jersey, and Luis Enrique came up with a whole new compliment for his star after the game.
Messi is decisive even when he is at home eating dinner
the Barcelona coach told reporters after their 3-2 triumph in La Liga, a result that allows the Catalan side to continue dreaming of winning the title, despite the fact that Madrid still have a game in hand, and same points as Barcelona.
He is the best player in history and I have seen a lot of football and many videos. He has scored 500 goals and it is a great pleasure for all the Barca fans to identify with him as one of them
Enrique said as well, going on to praise Messi further more;
Barca have been an incredible for many years but an important part of their history is owed to Messi
were Enrique’s words.
Minutes earlier, Andres Iniesta, Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, all had hailed Messi as the best player in the history of the game, in awe of how decisive he had proved in Barcelona’s dramatic win at Bernabeu. The cherry on top, was taking off his shirt after his stoppage-time goal, and holding it in a way he had never done before.
