“He is priceless,” Begiristain told Sport.
“There are a series of players in world football who are untouchable. Cristiano Ronaldo, for example, Manchester United wouldn’t let him go to Madrid. Milan would not sell Kaka. Right now, in Messi, Barcelona has the best soccer player on planet Earth.”
He continued on Messi: “I see him helping Barcelona to many titles, and winning not one but several golden balls (Balon D’or). There is nobody like him, especially in one-on-one situations.”
