Edilson: My Peak Was Better Than Messi, Cristiano, Neymar

Edilson: My Peak Was Better Than Messi, Cristiano, Neymar

Messi turns 33 this year, while Ronaldo is already 35.

Former Brazil global Edilson says Lionel Messi and Neymar must win the FIFA World Cup before they can be compared to him. With that plan in place, clubs have resumed individual training sessions as part of a strict programme with Barcelona being one of the first teams to train on last Friday.

Despite five players from La Liga clubs testing positive with Covid-19 earlier, president Javier Tebas said on Sunday that he still hopes the league can restart on June 12.

"But we also understand it is essential to comply with protocols and take all the possible measures of prevention".

"Personally, I can't wait for the competitions to come back. We know it's going to all be very unusual, without anyone in the stands, I've done it before and I found it out", said the Barca captain. "But, well, we'll have to see what happens with him and other names that have been linked".

Barcelona lead the standings with 58 points from 27 matches, and are two points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid.

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has admitted that the coronavirus-enforced confinement was hard, but he is now looking forward to football getting back underway in the near future.

"If I'm honest I don't know very well if there were or are negotiations right now, I have no idea", Messi told Mundo Deportivo.

"Lautaro is an impressive striker, especially because I think he is very complete - he is strong, he dribbles well, he has an eye for goal, he knows how to protect the ball".

Lionel Messi believes Barcelona can not win the Champions League if it returns this summer because of the tactical style and performances under manager Quique Setien.

Notably, the Champions League now stands suspended as a precautionary measure against the spread of the coronavirus.

The Spanish giant had drawn 1-1 away to Napoli in February, with Messi claiming Barca could not win the Champions League - a view Setien did not share in April.

"Playing as we did in the matches before play was stopped, we would never win the Champions League".
