"Lionel Messi Is The Harry Potter Of Football" - Christian Vieri Hails Barcelona Star After Win At Juventus
Christian Vieri hailed Lionel Messi as a magician and claims he'll throw away his TV when the Barcelona superstar retires.
His performance received widespread acclaim from fans and critics including CBS Sports pundit and former Italy international Vieri.
The former Juventus star showered Messi with praise and described him as the Harry Potter of football.
He said: "An amazing Barcelona, there was no game. They could've scored six, seven goals easy. They played fantastic.
"Messi is a magician, he's the Harry Potter of soccer and when he stops playing, I'm throwing my TVs away. I'm not going to work no more on TV, I'm going to watch Netflix, that's it, because when he stops there's nothing else to watch."

Barcelona rebounded from their El Clasico defeat and Vieri was impressed by the Spanish club's showing.
"It's just another football, another game," he added.
"I don't know how they lost against Real Madrid, but if you see them [against Juventus] you're going to say they can't lose against anyone this year, it's impossible the way they played.
"Every game is different but the Barcelona I saw and everyone saw it's just incredible. When you've got a number 10 like that, it's just crazy.
"It's a pity there are no fans here because the fans should be seeing a team like this."
Barcelona resume their La Liga campaign on Saturday when they face Alaves.
