The midfielder recognises that catching Madrid is difficult, but "hope is the last thing you lose" .
"I think Messi is the best player ever," Thiago said, whilst acknowledging that the Barça number 10 will continue to make history.
Thiago believes that just as there are people who say they saw Pelé or Maradona play, he can say he has seen "Leo Messi play. He's a player who has made history, is making history and will continue to make history". He believes that there are few adjectives left to define the Barça superstar, but what he is certain of is that "Messi is unique".
He also spoke about Cristian Tello. Thiago is not surprised by his performances, as he knows him well from playing with him in the reserve and youth teams. "He's always had this speed and ability" said the midfielder, who predicts that he'll score more goals. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
