Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova says Lionel Messi is the best the world has seen.

Messi has continued his amazing goal scoring form into the new season.

"He is the best player in the world and surely the best ever. For all Barça fans it would be joy if he sees his career out here. Hopefully we can enjoy seeing him for many more years because we will never see a player like Messi again," said Vilanova.
