The Argentine took his goal tally to 19 in LaLiga when he scored twice in the Blaugrana's 5-0 hammering of their opponents over the weekend.

After the match, Valverde hailed the five-time Ballon d'Or winner for his performance, and insisted that football fans are lucky to be living in his era.

"You have to enjoy him, we have been able to live his era," Valverde said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I have suffered because of him and I know what that is like. Now I can enjoy it.

"It is an event to watch him every day. He is the best player there is and there ever will be."

Messi has made 30 appearances for Barca so far this season, scoring 25 goals and assisting 12 further strikes.

He didn't have to glorify himself because we see it every match he plays so that would be idiotic or insecure if you know trueth you don't argue or axplain but if there is sense lie you will always want to state something
