"Messi playing like Xavi? Bollox! Messi plays like Messi"
The ex-captain spoke to La Vanguardia about Barcelona's current form: "I'm drooling at the way the team is playing".
Xavi Hernández is closely following the goings-on in world football from his base camp in Qatar, praising the Barcelona side for their scintillating football. The ex-Barça captain received La Vanguardia in his home in the Emirate state, saying "Barcelona have what they need to keep winning".
"The way the team plays makes me drool, they're at a stratospheric level", he continued, assuring that Messi is in his best years: "I felt at my best between 28 and 32, and he's looking after himself better than ever, he's spectacular".
Xavi also said it makes him laugh when people say "Messi is playing like Xavi? What a load of balls, Messi plays like Messi, he does whatever he wants, he does everything well and is the best in history. He doesn't have to win a World Cup to prove it, Di Stéfano and Cruyff didn't win it either".
