‘Messi’s career like a movie script’

Barcelona beat Getafe 4-0 in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night, and Tata Martino praised his men for their ‘excellent football’.

The Blaugrana were convincing winners, but the main story to come out of the match was the fact that Lionel Messi returned from injury – and scored two goals.

“We played excellent football,” the Coach told reporters. “Getafe made it difficult for us and perhaps they deserved a goal, but we played well.

“Messi’s career is like a movie script. In three minutes he scored two goals.

“But I thought Cesc was the best player of the match. It’s important for all the players be fit and feel needed by the team.

“We are playing good football, the ball circulation was fast, we didn’t let them organise. We had control of the match, and this is because we’re going through our best form so far this season.”
