The Chelsea skipper is hugely impressed by the ace Barcelona player's dazzling skills.
Messi scored all four goals against Arsenal on Tuesday in a virtuoso performance to end the Gunners' Champions League hopes this season with a 4-1 victory at the Nou Camp, The Sun reports.
"I think the best way to deal with Messi is to let our left-back Ashley Cole try to tackle him and I just stay in the middle somewhere," Terry joked.
"He is so good - incredible and unplayable at times. If he comes inside at any time you need two men to double up on him," he said.
"You can't get near him in a one-on-one. I was really impressed with him this week and he is a special talent, especially when he is performing at the Nou Camp," Terry added. (ANI)
