Lionel Messi like Batman compared to other players - Sevilla's Jorge Sampaoli

Diego Maradona has said that Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala are not on the same level as Lionel Messi.

Sevilla coach Jorge Sampaoli has again heaped praise on Lionel Messi, claiming the Barcelona star is "Batman" compared to the rest of the players.

Sampaoli -- who has been tipped to succeed Luis Enrique at Barca -- recently revealed his wish to manage Messi one day, describing his fellow Argentine as "the best in the world."

Messi finished runner-up to Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo for both the Ballon d'Or award and FIFA's Best Men's Player for 2016, but Sampaoli told beIN SPORTS ESPANA:...

Inter Milan not buying Lionel Messi, planning big signing - Massimo Moratti

Gab Marcotti assesses Inter Milan's win over Chievo and believes Roberto Gagliardini played like 'a young Steven Gerrard'.

Former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says there are no plans for Lionel Messi to join the Serie A club, although he claims the Nerazzurri's new owners are planning a big-name signing in the summer.

Moratti dined with his successor at Inter, Erick Thohir, and Steven Zhang, the son of the owner of the club's current majority stakeholders Suning, on Thursday and he emerged afterwards to tell reporters how ambitious their plans are.

Lionel Messi should have seen red card, says furious Asier Illarramendi

Craig Burley and Steve Nicol say the title race is back on in La Liga after Real Madrid's loss to Sevilla.

Asier Illarramendi was furious Lionel Messi was not sent off as Barcelona beat Real Sociedad 1-0 in the Copa del Rey on Thursday to end a 10-year wait for a win at Anoeta.

Messi was booked in the first half for time wasting and Illarramendi felt he should then have seen a second yellow card for obstruction when he stopped him taking a quick free kick after the break. Messi has only been sent off once in his career for club and country on his debut for Argentina against Hungary in 2005.

Neymar's penalty wins it for Barcelona at least happy hunting ground La Real

Craig Burley and Steve Nicol say the title race is back on in La Liga after Real Madrid's loss to Sevilla.
Neymar celeb vs Sociedad
Neymar and Barcelona will take an advantage into their second-leg meeting with Real Sociedad after their 1-0 win at Aneota.

Nine-and-a-half years on, Barcelona finally exorcised the ghosts of Anoeta and left San Sebastian with a 1-0 win over Real Sociedad that sets them up nicely for next week's Copa del Rey second leg.

This was no vintage display from Luis Enrique's side, however, and things could have gone the other way again had the home team taken their chances. Barca also squandered opportunities, particularly Neymar, but most supporters would have gladly taken the offer of a 1-0 away win at Barca's least happy...

Gustavo Poyet 'honoured' to lose against Barcelona's Lionel Messi

Alison Bender and Gab Marcotti discuss Lionel Messi's contract situation, amid rumors Manchester City are interested.
Gus Poyet explains during his presentation as the new head coach of Real Betis how his approach differs from that of Gary Neville and David Moyes.

Former Real Betis coach Gustavo Poyet says coaching a side against Lionel Messi is an honour which no one can take away from him.

Messi scored two goals and created another as Barcelona beat Real Betis 6-2 at Camp Nou on the opening day of the La Liga season.

It was Poyet's first game in charge of the Seville-based side and while his team were comfortably beaten, he has fond memories of witnessing Messi up close.

"I maintain the memory of that game, the first in La Liga this season," the now Shanghai...

Diego Maradona has said that Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala are not on the same level as Lionel Messi.
Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi led Barca in their five-goal rout of Las Palmas, positioning them two points behind Real.

This story corrects an earlier ESPN FC article.

Barcelona and Lionel Messi's father have both denied that the Argentina forward had given an interview to a U.K. magazine that was picked up by multiple outlets including ESPN FC.

In the interview, Messi was reported to have made wide-ranging comments about his current contract negotiations with the Catalan club, who have since denied that the interview ever took place.

A club spokesperson told ESPN FC on Wednesday that the interview was "100 percent...
