Barcelona head coach Ernest Valverde has revealed the work ethic of Lionel Messi and claims he has never seen a player like the Argentine maestro.
Valverde: “I’ve honestly never seen a competitor like Messi. He has a huge sense of responsibility for the team. When he’s injured he plays with pain. When he has to show up for the team he does. For big games, he is the first – not just one day but permanently. That requires great mental strength.”
