Lionel Messi: I’m Excited To Work Under Ernesto Valverde

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi says he is excited to meet his new backroom staff and work under Ernesto Valverde this season.

Reports: Real Target Had Three-Hour Meeting With Wenger

The Spaniard replaced Luis Enrique as the head coach at the Catalan giants and will soon be in charge of his first game, as the Blaugrana take on Juventus in New Jersey.

Talking a sponsor’s event in Tokyo, Messi admitted that he hasn’t had much time to get to know his new boss, but he has heard only good things from others who have worked with him.

"With the new manager everything will be new," Messi said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I don't know what kind of manager he is, but he is a great person.

"He was with Valencia and Bilbao, we are hearing a lot about his very good reputation, so we are pinning our hopes on this new beginning.

"Whenever I start a new season there is a very clear-cut goal, which is that Barcelona will do our best.

"Personally I am very happy and looking forward to starting a new season. We have new coaches and assistants. I would like to work with them and enjoy Barcelona for another year."

Four Players Still On Mourinho’s Radar?

The La Liga giants only ended up with one trophy last season and that was the Copa del Rey.
