Guardiola says Barcelona ace Messi has improved him as 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."
