Enrique honoured to coach Messi

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique says he is honoured to be Lionel Messi's coach after the Argentinean became the top goalscorer in Primera Division history on Saturday night.

Messi bagged a treble to help Enrique's side complete a 5-1 win over Sevilla at the Nou Camp, as the forward overtook Telmo Zarra's scoring record with his 253rd goal in his 289th appearance.

I have never seen a player like Messi. I feel lucky to be his manager. Nobody can be compared to him. He's one-of-a-kind and we'll never see anyone like him ever again and we are privileged to have him and be able to watch him.

Moyes happy with first performance

Real Sociedad boss David Moyes was not happy with just a point from his opening match in charge against Deportivo La Coruna, but the Scot enjoyed the experience.

The move to San Sebastian is something of a leap of faith for Moyes, whose reputation took a battering in England after he lasted just 10 months at Manchester United.

Moyes began his tenure with a goalless draw at Riazor as Sociedad registered their first clean sheet for seven months.

I wanted to win and I'm not happy with the draw because we worked hard, but at the end we can say that's a fair point. It was a good first half - we were far superior.

I was disappointed with the second half, we started the second half slowly.

I really enjoyed it and it was a great experience.

Lionel Messi scored his first hat-trick of the season and made history as he fired Barcelona to a resounding 5-1 Primera Division win at home to Sevilla.

The Argentinian opened the scoring with a sensational free-kick to draw level with former Athletic Bilbao forward Telmo Zarra as the Primera Division's all-time top scorer but his strike was cancelled out by Jordi Alba's own goal at the start of the second half.

Neymar headed Barca back in front moments later, then Ivan Rakitic extended Barca's lead before Messi broke the La Liga all-time scoring record after an awesome combination with Neymar, and then the Argentinian struck again to complete his treble and score his 253rd league strike.
