Litmanen: Messi & Neymar Best In The World

Former FC Barcelona player, Jari Litmanen, believes the Catalan giants have the best two players in the world in Lionel Messi and Neymar.

However, the Finland legend, reckons it will take time before we will see the true new Barcelona following the departures of Victor Valdes, Carles Puyol, Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez.

“Barça always have great teams, and right now they’ve got the best two players in the world, Messi and Neymar,” he told Barcelona’s official website.

Litmanen was at Camp Nou from 1999 to 2001 and played alongside Luis Enrique and Xavi Hernandez, but his stint was plagued by injuries.

“It was all very special. It’s a fantastic club but I suffered a lot of injuries and was only there for a short while,” he continued.

“When we were together, Luis Enrique was playing for Spain and Xavi was with the U21s. Luis Enrique was passionate player, a great player. And Xavi was very talented. He’s been at Barça for 15 years and is one of the best players the club has ever had.”

Litmanen hailed Barcelona’s visit to Finland this past weekend and said it was ‘very important for Helsinki and the country’.

Barcelona thrashed a helpless HJK Helsinki 6-0.
