The Argentine’s magic still surprises the Barcelona boss, who says he can’t understand how his star always comes good in big moments
Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde still gets surprised by Lionel Messi and said the star instilled fear in opponents after starring against Liverpool.
Messi scored a brace after Luis Suarez’s opener as Barca took control of their Champions League semi-final by winning the first leg 3-0 at Camp Nou on Wednesday.
The forward’s second was a tremendous 30-yard free-kick which brought up his 600th goal for the La Liga giants.
Messi has scored 48 goals in 46 games this season for Barca, who have already won La Liga and would complete a treble with the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
