Ernesto Valverde took time to praise Lionel Messi after the Barcelona captain netted his 400th La Liga goal against Eibar on Sunday.
Messi struck Barcelona’s second in a 3-0 win to reach yet another landmark in his glittering career.
Valverde was pretty impressed with Messi and spoke about him after the match.
“It’s monstrous,” he said. “It’s easy to say but you have to score them one after the other, it’s a long-term job.
”Messi is an extraordinary player because he is not only a scorer. It’s everything that he creates around him too.
“His numbers are stratospheric, incredible. He is from another galaxy.”
