FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is widely regarded as one of the best players of all time, a status he has achieved without needing to work as hard as others, a rival player has claimed.
The Catalan giants will play away at Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon, and a win is necessary if they want to keep pressure on LaLiga leaders Real Madrid.
Speaking ahead of the game, Celta star Nolito praised the Blaugrana captain, saying that Messi was gifted with special talents that do not require him to be physically stronger than his opponents.
"God touched Messi with the magic wand three or four times to make him the best in the world without the need to go to the gym or anything, it's something that he's got inside," he said, according to Sport.

"We will try and make Barcelona suffer, although they have great players like Messi and they can score from any of your slip-ups.
"Celta have very good players too and we're in good form, we've won two games. We have to work hard, set ourselves and win however we can."
Barcelona and Real are currently tied on 68 points after 31 games each, although Los Blancos occupy first place courtesy of the head-to-head ruling.
