Lionel Messi has given a lengthy interview to La Sexta which is due to be broadcast on Sunday and promises to be interesting stuff.

A few snippets of Messi’s chat with Jordi Evole have already been released, and a third preview has now come out which features the Barca captain talking coaches.

Here’s what he’s had to say about Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique.

“Pep has something special. He makes you see things in a wonderful way, how he prepares for games, how to defend, and how to attack,” he said.

“I was lucky to train under Guardiola and Luis Enrique, the two best. Having them made me grow a lot physically and mentally, and also the tactical wisdom they’ve taught me.”

There’s been plenty of talk that Messi could play with Guardiola again at Manchester City if he does walk away from Barca when his contract expires. Yet the former Barca boss has said on several occasions he wants Messi to stay at the Camp Nou.
