Spain manager Luis Enrique: 'Nobody compares to Lionel Messi'

Messi has forged a reputation as one of the globe's top talents during his storied career and has earned five Ballon d'Or awards in the process.

Luka Modric is a "spectacular" player but does not share Lionel Messi's class, according to Barcelona's Sergio Busquets.

Federation Internationale de Football Association announced its three-man shortlist for the men's award last week, with Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah the final trio.

"There are seasons that you can be better or not", Rakitic told reporters ahead of Croatia's Nations League clash against Spain on Tuesday.

Modric helped Real Madrid secure their third consecutive Champions League in May and he became a World Cup runner-up with Croatia this summer, alongside Rakitic. "They both deserve individual prizes".

"But if I have to talk about the best in the world, the prize of the best player would be given to Leo Messi, who is one step above the rest".

Atletico Madrid and Brazil left-back Filipe Luis, who knows all about the Argentine's prowess, has weighed into the debate.

Spain coach Luis Enrique is the latest to give his opinion on FIFA's The Best award, adamant that snubbed Barcelona star Lionel Messi is the world's most impressive player.

"For me, today, it's Messi". The Croatian champion, who is now busy with his national team and has celebrated his 33rd birthday a few days ago, has been in contact with his Croatian friends at Inter.
