Messi is like Batman

Lionel Messi has been Barcelona’s superhero for over a decade now. Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli believes that the Argentinian is on a different level.

Messi finished second to Christiano Ronaldo in Ballon d’Or and FIFA’s The Best awards, but has been widely regarded as the best footballer who has ever lived.

Sampaoli said: ‘Equating Messi with anyone else is like comparing a police man with Batman.’ in an interview with BeIN Sports.

Sevilla are currently 2nd in La Liga 1 point ahead of 3rd place Barcelona.
