Ernesto Valverde was full of praise for Lionel Messi after his captain produced a sensational display in Tuesday’s 5-1 win over Real Valladolid.

The Argentine picked up two goals and two assists in another magical performance for the Spanish champions to leave his manager purring after the game.

“What can I say? Every time he gets it, something happens, good for us and bad for them.

“He has this talent that nobody else has. It’s not just that he makes one move and unbalances them, but he sees what nobody else sees.

“I’m convinced that what he sees, you can’t even see from the stands. And now he looks fresher. We’re happy because he’s doing well and because we’re enjoying how he plays.”

Next up for Barcelona is a trip to Levante on Saturday which will bring back good memories for Messi. He hit a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over the Frogs last season in La Liga.
