The eternal level-headed debate: is FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi the best footballer to ever grace the game? Everybody has an opionion on the issue and Julen Lopetegui, Spain head coach, has given his assertion.
“He’s the best player ever, I agree,” Lopetegui said, in an interview with Argentinian sports channel ‘TyC Sports’. For the head coach of ‘La Roja’, Argentina are one of the favourites for next summer World Cup in Russia thanks to the Barcelona star.
At the point when Messi was young he could have represent the Spain national team (La Furia Roja ),but he never thought about it. Lopetegui isn’t troubled by that choice.
“Messi plays for Argentina, we have what we have,” said the 51-year-old, who can call upon Isco and Iniesta, among others. He’s not exactly short of top players.
“I try to encourage the qualities which we consider are the best, and that’s why we have to make sure we play together,” he added.
On Samapoli’s Argentina, Lopetegui said: “They are an extraordinary team, with some extraordinary players and a coach who has given them something extra. They will be one of the teams fighting for the title.”
“If they gave us points for recognizing that we’re favourites, I would do it. But seeing as it makes no difference…
What matters is what we do on the pitch. We have to make sure we are at our best against whoever we may be up against,” he stated, on Spain’s role in the World Cup.
