‘I would consider Messi the best player of all time even without him winning the World Cup’ – Guardiola

Head Coach “Manchester City” Josep Guardiola said he was going Lionel Messi the best player of all time, even if the striker Argentina national team did not win the World Cup in Qatar.

Last week, the Argentina national team in the 2022 World Cup final defeated the France team in a penalty shootout. Messi scored twice and netted once in the penalty shootout. The 35-year-old striker previously played under Guardiola in “Barcelona” .

Everyone has their opinion, but no one can doubt that he is the greatest player of all time. For me, he’s the best, it’s hard to imagine how a player can achieve such results. If Messi hadn’t won the World Cup, my opinion wouldn’t have changed,” Guardiola told Reuters.

Guardiola also noted that the 16 Manchester City players who took part in the 2022 World Cup will gradually return to work at the club.

Six players returned on Wednesday. They had an incredible and unique experience. I hope they perform well and in four years they will have another similar experience at Worlds in Canada, Mexico and the United States.

The players who were at the World Cup are in better shape than the players who were with us here. Sergio (Gómez), Erling (Holland), Riyad (Marez) and Cole (Palmer) are a bit off pace compared to Rodri or Manuel Akanji,” added Guardiola.

On Thursday, Manchester City will host Liverpool in the 1/8 final of the English League Cup.
