The Blaugrana legend has helped inspire his teammates to yet another league title in Spain, with a semi-final spot in the UEFA Champions League and a Copa del Rey final already booked too.

Paolo Bandini, an Italian journalist, has now made the claim that the Argentine superstar should not be compared to anybody else in world football, not even Ronaldo.

"In my opinion, Messi is the best footballer I have ever watched in my lifetime," he told ESPN FC.

"Of course, I can't comment on the many, many decades of football that happened before I was around, but I think that he is head and shoulders above anyone else.

"And I include Cristiano Ronaldo in that. He is an incredible goalscorer and also a unique talent, the likes of which we will not see again for a long time, but, to me, Leo Messi just does things with a football that I think are unparalleled."

Messi has played 45 matches across all competitions for Barca so far this season, scoring 46 goals and assisting a further 22 strikes.
