Speaking on the Amazon Prime documentary This Is Football, Guardiola explained why the 33-year-old Argentine superstar was in a league of his own on the pitch.

The former Bayern Munich boss said: "He's not out of the game. He's involved. Moving his head. Right, left, left, right.

"He smells who is the weak point of the back four. After five, ten minutes, he has the map.

"He knows if I move here, here, I will have more space to attack. We are contemporary of that guy. So enjoy it. He is so good."
