Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde, has said Lionel Messi is unstoppable when he’s at his best, after the Argentine fired Barcelona into the semi-finals of the Champions League, for the first time in four years.
Messi scored twice in Barca’s 3-0 win over Manchester United at Camp Nou on Wednesday, to take his tally for the season to 45 in all competitions.
“Leo always appears in the important games.
“Not just to finish off the moves, but all over the pitch.
“He’s involved in all our play. He gets the goals, but he also takes on responsibility in attack. When he’s playing like that, he’s unstoppable,” Valverde said in his postgame news conference.
Barca will now face either Liverpool or FC Porto in the last four.
