The Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop has praised the Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi by saying that he is a very special talent indeed. The Argentine striker Lionel Messi is widely regarded to be the best player in the world. In fact, many are speaking of him in the same breath as Maradona or Pele, and even an LFC fanzine voted him the best player in the World!
Even though the Barcelona superstar has often acknowledged the fact that he still has a lot to achieve in football, many regard him to be the best in the world. It is also the opinion of the Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop. Barcelona will be playing against Sevilla during the weekend hoping to re-establish their eight-point advantage at the top of the table.
Due to their impressive form shown by Lionel Messi in the first few weeks of the new season, Barcelona have been able to build an eight-point advantage at the top of the table over Real Madrid. So far, he has scored 10 goals in just eight matches this campaign and is once again a favourite to lift the top scorer award in Spain. Andres Palop reckons that it is not take long to understand that Lionel Messi is indeed a special talent that does not show itself often.
“Messi is the best player I have faced in my career. When he comes toward you, you just don’t know what he’s going to try to do. With Messi there’s no point in thinking what he might attempt because he’ll just end up doing something totally different, something so surprising,” Palop told the official website of the UEFA. Sevilla will be playing against Barcelona hoping to continue their unbeaten run in the la Liga this season. As a result of the good form in the early part of the campaign, they are currently in the fifth position with 11 points on the board.
