'It's Embarrassing That Messi Is Compared To Anyone Else!'

'It's Embarrassing That Lionel Messi Is Compared To Anyone Else!'

By Keegan Kruger - Jan 10, 2018 04:33 PM @KeeganKruger

FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez has once again heaped praise on Lionel Messi, saying it is "embarrassing" that he is compared to others.

Critical Xavi Slams Real's Playing Style

The Argentina superstar might have lost out on the Ballon d'Or last year, but he has begun this season like a house on fire, netting 16 goals in LaLiga already, and Xavi had some words of praise for his former teammate.

"Tactically, he (Messi) understands everything," the Al Sadd midfielder said, as quoted by El Pais.

"It is embarrassing that he is compared with anybody else. Messi is aware of everything – space, time, where his teammates are, and the opponents."

The Spaniard also gave his opinion on whether or not Cristiano Ronaldo should be playing as the lead striker for Real Madrid.

"Cristiano cannot play in the centre. It does not suit him," Xavi added.

The Most Expensive World XI

Messi has made 26 appearances across all competitions for the Blaugrana so far this season, scoring 20 goals and assisting a further nine strikes.
