La Liga president Javier Tebas said that Messi is the most important player to ever play in La Liga.
“Messi is part of Barcelona and will stay there. We consider him part of LaLiga Santander and he transcends normal players. He’s an icon, the most important player that has passed through our league. He is a level above,” said Tebas.
Tebas added that he wants to see Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho return to Spain one day.
“I always say that I’d like coaches like Mourinho and Guardiola to return to coaching in our league. They are two great coaches with their personality and controversies, but also with their styles on the pitch. They have proved to be the elite.”
