La Liga president Javier Tibas believes Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is the best player in the history of the witch.
Speaking to the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportiv on Thursday, Tibas said Messi was the best player in football history because he has been in the elite for 16 years.
He added that "he has presented high and wonderful levels, and the captain of his country always in time, and represents the number 10 in everything."
"Although my wish is for Neymar to return to La Liga again, I think Messi is much better than him," he said.
"It is necessary to continue Messi in Barcelona and not to leave the Spanish league, it is a major gain for Spanish football," the league president said.
The Bulga scored 604 goals and contributed 244 goals in 692 games for the Catalans.
Messi has won 10 La Liga titles with Barcelona, six domestic trophies, eight local Super Cups, four Champions League titles, three European Super Cups and a Club World Cup.
