'Messi wouldn't fit with our values'

While many clubs would love to Lionel Messi, one LaLiga club has revealed they wouldn't sign the Argentine superstar if they were afforded the chance.

Messi has enjoyed a trophy-laden career with the Catalan giants, and holds numerous records in the Spanish top flight.

However, Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil feels the six-time Ballon d'Or winner would not fit with the club's values.

"He wouldn't fit with the values and the way we are at Real Sociedad," Imanol said, as per Marca. "However, he's an incredible player and does incredible things.

"But these values of humility, normality, these big players don't have them, coaching Messi would give me headaches, even though I'd win more games."
