    I rate Iniesta above Messi, not so much due to a strong personality, but he was always playing more for the team, while Messi often favors Suarez due to their friendship or isnt a typical team player who treats his teammates as equals. Iniesta was to insecure and depprsive to be a captain, but his personality also did harmonize the team as a whole unity.

    Messi pressing in those games wouldn't have affected the results. He didn't press much when we won in 2011 and 2015. The performance of the team was too poor

    Do you rate iniesta over messi as a player or a captain? As a player it is quite clear messi is better and has been more integral to our success. I do rate iniesta as the next best after messi, although you can argue for cr7 due to his numbers. As a captain, its difficult to tell as both weren't or haven't been captain too long for us

    You cut the post in half and missed the point.
    Time context is clearly referenced, if one understands English good enough.

    To simplify the point, the bottomline is this: people will always find something to complain about, even when dealing with the best player in history. That is entitlement, pure and simple.

    sadly it doesn't really mean anything that hes attending. Messi isn't a sore loser like Cristiano so he'll show up and if VVD wins? he'll show his respect

    If that was the case he would run on average more than 6km/game.
