Sevilla head coach Jorge Sampaoli said that there is no player like Barcelona ace, trying to Lionel Messi in football world.
A five-time Ballon d’Or winner and Barca’s all-time leading goalscorer, Messi is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time.
The Barcelona ace is often compared with past greats Pele and Diego Maradona, as he continues to go head-to-head against Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo for modern-day supremacy.
Sampaoli, however, insisted it is a waste of time trying to measure him against others.
“Equating Messi with anyone else is like comparing a policeman with Batman,” Sampaoli told BeIN Sports.
The Argentine international, who lost out to Ronaldo for the Ballon d’Or and The FIFA Men’s Player, tops La Liga’s goal scoring charts this season with 14.
The Argentina international has scored 27 goals in all competitions.
