<p>Former Barcelona star Patrick Kluivert has praised the Catalan side's brand of football as "out of this world"</p><p>Speaking to the club's official website, the Dutchman lauded: "The way they [Barcelona] play is impressive. The football they play is out of this world".</p> <p>"I've played with Xavi, [Carles] Puyol and [Andres] Iniesta, and now they are the backbone of this team.</p> <p>"When I was there, they were young, it's a real honour and pleasure to see their play bring so much success to the club."</p> <p>Kluivert also revealed that Guardiola was always destined to be a "great manager", even during his playing days.</p> <p>"He was already a leader when he was a footballer and you had the intuition that when he finished his career he would be a great manager," added Kluivert.</p> <p>"He connects with the players. He knows how he wants the team to play and he communicates that well to his players."</p> <p>The Dutchman also compared the form that Lionel Messi has had for both club and country, and blamed the selfishness of Argentina's football for the stark difference.</p> <p>"Barca plays for Messi but on the other hand when we see him play for his national side, he's different," he said.</p> <p>"When Messi plays for Barca he's simply marvellous, but with Argentina there are many players that just play for themselves."</p> <p>Kluivert played for Barcelona from 1998-2004, scoring 122 goals during his time in Catalunya.</p>
