Lionel Messi says Pedro deserved to score the winner in the Super Cup final.
The Argentine was given man of the match after scoring twice in the first half, but the Canary Islander sealed the win with a fine goal to give Barcelona a 5-4 victory over Sevilla.
Messi said: "[Pedro] deserved it for everything he has given and continues to give to the club. I don’t know what will happen with him, it’s a decision he has to take, but whatever he does he deserves it."
Messi wasn't focused on winning the sextuple, though. When asked about the possibility, he said: "We need to go step by step. We must first think about Bilbao (in the Spanish Super Cup) and then start La Liga.”
