Barcelona boss Luis Enrique hails Lionel Messi after El Clasico display against Real Madrid

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique praised Lionel Messi after his match-winning display in Sunday’s El Clasico against Real Madrid.
Barca emerged 3-2 winners at Santiago Bernabeu, with Messi scoring twice, including a stoppage-time winner that took his side level with Los Blancos at the top of the standings.
"It was a match between two great teams, who could win any of the two trophies," Enrique said after the game.
"In terms of rhythm, our previous games in the Champions League were noticeable. Some of the lads were seen to have asked for water on the touchlines.
"Tiredness meant both two teams conceded too much. It was a game that was very demanding physically and mentally.
"I wanted a more comfortable game, in which we wouldn’t give away so much and had more chances, but it was a Clasico at the height of the two clubs."
Messi’s match-winning strike with the last kick of the game was the Argentinean maestro’s 500th goal for the Catalan club.
"[Messi is] always decisive, even when he’s at home having dinner," Enrique added. "He’s the best of all time, and I’ve seen many football videos.
"Leo always creates superiority in the middle of the pitch and we want him to participate as much as possible."
