London, Mar 19(ANI): Barcelona striker Thierry Henry reckons that no other football player in the world can come close to matching fellow team-mate Lionel Messi on current form.
Henry believes that Messi is currently playing better than last season.
The 22-year-old has now scored eight goals in just four games, and eight of his side's last 11 goals.
"It's kind of ridiculous what he's doing. He's amazing. I don't know if you can say he's playing better, but he's maintaining what he was doing and playing at a level where nobody from Barcelona wants him to stop," The Mirror quoted Henry, as saying.
Meanwhile, Stuttgart coach Christian Gross, whose side was thumped by Barcelona 4-0 to complete the line-up for the last eight, said there is no doubting that Messi is the best player in the world.
"His ability is incredible when you consider his age. I think it's fair to compare him to Diego Maradona," Gross added. (ANI)
