Ferguson: “ Barça are the best team in the world”

The press conference held before tonight's ceremony was shared between the three Barça representatives(Guardiola, Xavi and Messi) and Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scot was again full of praise for Barça, claiming: "as a team they are the best by a long way and I've been saying that for a few years now. Sometimes in football you just have to say 'they are better than us.' Barça are the best and I can see nobody better to win the award tonight than Pep." As to Leo Messi, Sir Alex believes: "he's a player who could have been playing in the 50s, just as well as now." (via FCBarcelona.cat)
