Pep Guardiola commented on Leo Messi and the trophy

The World Cup is over. Many are now summarizing their impressions and talking about who is the greatest? Many believe that with this trophy, Leo Messi confirmed that he is the greatest football player ever. His former coach, Pep Guardiola, commented on Messi and the World Cup.

"Everyone has an opinion but nobody can doubt that he is there, with the greatest of all time," Guardiola said, as quoted by eurosport.cpm "For me I said many times, he is the best.
“It would be difficult to understand that a player can compete with what he has done in the last 50 to 70 years.

With the people who saw Pele or [Alfredo] Di Stefano or [Diego] Maradona, their opinions are often sentimental. If he [Messi] had not won the World Cup, my opinion about what he has done for world football, it wouldn't have changed absolutely anything.

Of course, for him it's the final achievement of an incredible career." Manchester City expects a match against Liverpool. The Spanish expert spoke about the readiness of individual players. "Today, six players came back,” said Guardiola.

“They had an incredible, unique experience. Hopefully they come back and work well and in four years they can have another experience in Canada, Mexico and the USA."

World Cup

The players seem to be in much better shape after returning from the World Cup.

"The players who were at the World Cup are in better condition than the players who were here. Sergio [Gomez], Erling, Riyad and Cole [Palmer], they are missing the rhythm a little bit compared to Rodri or Manuel Akanji. They competed and we had holidays.
"I'm not concerned about March or April now.

Now every player has had different managers, a different competition. Their mind was away, but we have an important game tomorrow, then against Leeds, the January schedule is demanding, so we want them back as soon as possible."
