Barcelona veteran Xavi: Messi wonder goal scandalous

Barcelona midfielder Xavi hailed Lionel Messi after their Copa del Rey final victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Messi struck a wonder goal in the 3-1 win.

"We have absolute confidence right now," Xavi told the club's official website.

"(It was) scandalous, awesome. I think it's one of the best goals he's ever scored."

Javier Mascherano added: "Maybe that was one of Messi's best goals. Goals are also measured by the importance of the match and by the opponent. Leo worked his magic and that moved things in our favour."
