Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has made an interesting statement about Lionel Messi.
Ten Hag says the Paris Saint-Germain superstar is a one-of-a-kind footballer and cannot be compared to any other player.
The former Ajax manager pointed out that everyone has seen what Messi can do, especially at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
He told Sky Sports: “There is only one Messi; we saw him at the World Cup.” The others must work and be part of a team.
The Argentina captain has scored a total of seven goals and produced three assists at the World Cup.
Messi is one of only three players from the South American nation to feature every minute of the campaign.
