Lionel Messi: Ernesto Valverde Has ‘Run Out Of Words’ For Barcelona Captain
Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde said he has “run out of words” to describe Lionel Messi after his stellar display in a 5-1 win against Real Valladolid.
Messi struck twice, including a landmark 50th career free-kick, and provided assists for Arturo Vidal and Luis Suarez as Barcelona returned to the top of La Liga with a seventh straight win in all competitions.
“What else can be said about him? I’ve run out of words,” Valverde said.
“We always know that he will appear, whatever the match.
“His talent isn’t comparable to anything, the reality is that every time he touches the ball, something special happens. I just don’t know what to say.”
