Quotes about Messi

2) “The best players are always in the thick of the action. (Michael) Jordan did it with the Bulls, (Kobe) Bryant does it with the Lakers and Leo does it here. We want him to stay with us because he’s the best and we wouldn’t swap him for anyone.”

11) “His speed is astonishing. It’s amazing how he can go 1 to 100 in just one second. I’m constantly around great players like Cristiano and Rooney, But this guy is just a step up above every other great footballer out there at the moment, Not only is he quick, determined, and extremely intelligent on the ball, but his movement off the ball is just as fantastic – unbelievable to sum it up in a word.”

14) “Without Messi there isn't a team for Argentina, Messi is brilliant, different, with a strong mentality. Let’s hope he doesn't change.”

Right now, he is at another club, and we have a little bit of a rivalry, but the friendship is larger and stronger.”
