Guardiola says Barcelona ace Messi has improved him as coach

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola says Lionel Messi has improved him as a coach.

Guardiola lauded the contribution of Messi to the success of his side over the past four seasons.

"He is more competitive than when he arrived and I have learned from him," said Guardiola.

"Without him we would have won titles, but it would have been almost impossible to win 14 out of 19.

"I hope that I have helped in some way if that was possible. It has been a privilege to train the best player I have seen and will ever see."
