Jose Mourinho, the former Manchester United manager, has described Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi, as ‘the God of Football.’ Concise News reports.
This was after Barcelona’s 3-0 victory over Liverpool on Wednesday.
The Argentina Star, Messi struck twice in the second half of the Champions League semi-final first leg at Camp Nou as Barcelona humbled Liverpool 3-0.
Also, it was the same scoreline they used in defeating Manchester United in the quarter-final second leg.
According to Manchester Evening News, the former Real Madrid boss said: “God of Football made it completely different,” when he talked about Messi’s performance during the game.
“Fabinho and even [Roberto] Firmino looks small [for the Messi’s free-kick] but is not small.
“Firmino is the last one but this side, the goalkeeper gave one metre to the diagonal to cover that situation and it’s impossible to stop.”
Mourinho described Suarez’s move as extraordinary as he struck the ball to scored the first goal amidst the tight defence.
“Luis Suarez’s movement [for the first goal] is phenomenal. One metre here, and I bring the defender with me, at least mentally because the defender thinks I’m going in that direction and now I’m going to attack the space in front. And goodbye.”
