'Messi Is God'

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is often considered among the best players to have ever played football, and one of his former managers has now described him as "a god".

Reports: Shock Clause Included In Messi's New Barca Contract

Former Blaugrana boss Frank Rijkaard was at the Camp Nou for the Catalan club's 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo at the weekend.

The Dutchman, who gave Messi his professional debut, was delighted to watch his former side again, and had some praise for the Argentine and Spanish midfielder Andres Iniesta.

"Now I am a family man and I am happy to have seen another Barcelona game," he said, according to Marca.

"My son is eight and it was his dream to watch a game live at the Camp Nou.

"Messi is a god for everyone, and also you have to give considerable praise to Andres Iniesta.

"I continue to watch all the players from afar, they have had great careers."
