Lionel Messi gave a special interview to legend Jorge Valdano ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.
“Guardiola did a lot of damage to football because what we were doing looked so easy and the whole world wanted to copy it,” Messi commented.
Leo Messi: “Guardiola did football a lot of harm. It seemed so easy, so simple, that everyone wanted to copy it. Without a doubt, he is the best coach I’ve ever had, he has something special”.

“Then I met a lot of people who were trying to copy Guardiola in football and then I realized what we had actually done, what it meant,” added the Argentine.
“Without a doubt he’s the best coach I’ve had in my career,” Leo continued.
“There is something special about the way Guardiola watches the games, prepares for them and communicates with his players. Everything he says before the match happens afterwards on the pitch,” Messi said.
