Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has come out to reiterate his admiration for Lionel Messi. This is coming amid speculation concerning a potential reunion for the pair at Etihad Stadium.
According to him, Messi is the strongest professional footballer he knows because his quality and mentality is top-notch.
He added that Lionel definitely has a very competitive attitude in football, and he is surely a different breed.
His words, “He’s very strong, the strongest. Beyond his quality, it’s his mentality, his head.”
“In four years at Barcelona, we played a lot of games in training and he didn’t lose even one. If he had lost, he would’ve left. He has that competitive mentality that only four or five players in history have, they have something different.”
“We all knew that Messi was the best, but then there were six or seven others who were strong and others who didn’t play because the others were so strong.”
