The Manchester City coach praises the Argentine once again, and also claims that the World Cup in Russia will be much better if coaches play an attacking style of football

“I have the perception that Messi has improved every coach who has managed him. He has the ability to make everyone around him better.

“The quality of the World Cup will depend on how brave the coaches are. If they think about attacking, it will be a good World Cup. When you get to the quarter-final or semi-final it will be more difficult, but there are some coaches who believe that the best way of not losing is to be positive.

“I have discovered that City are a much bigger and better club than people believe it is. I do not rule out managing in 10 years’ time, everything will depend on how I feel and whether they love me.”
