Lionel Messi is the most humble footballer that you’ll ever come across. He’ll be the last player to suggest that he is the best player at the moment let alone the best of all time. Since he broke Gerd Muller’s goal record of the most goals scored in one calendar year, his reputation of being the World’s best has taken a step-up as people are saying he is the best of all time.
There’s no doubt he is the best player of this generation but questions still loom over whether he is better than the Maradona and Pele. Everyone can see similarities between Messi and Maradona. The close control, the pace of their dribbling and most of all their appetite for goals. But if you can compare the two players, it becomes very difficult to choose. Many people say Messi needs Barcelona to play well as he doesn’t perform whilst with Argentina. Whereas Maradona played in average Napoli and Argentina sides which were highly successful.
