“I don’t consider myself the best their are players that are better than Me,” Messi tells Paper … “I think I am just another player.”
As Paper points out, Messi has one of the most impressive resumes in pro sports.
“He has helped his team, FC Barcelona, win 32 trophies — including nine Spanish Liga titles and four in the Champions League. He led the Argentine national team to the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and brought them victory at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2005.”
He’s also got 5 Ballon d’Or awards, 5 Golden Shoes and holds the Guinness World Record for the most goals officially scored in a season (50 in the 2011-12 La Liga season).
But sure … just a regular player.
“On the field, we are all the same when the game begins,” Messi adds.
Messi also talked about everything from his upbringing in Argentina to his charity work with UNICEF .
No word on who had to clean up after the goats.
Lionel Messi is the greatest player of all time. Argue about it all you want, but facts are facts. Being considered the greatest of all time takes a little more than just talent. In the world of soccer, especially at this time, impressive statistics don’t do much to make you stand out — let alone be considered the the best soccer player of all time. Though if we are talking purely statistics then, in most categories, Messi is outperforming every player, with Cristiano Ronaldo .
All Messi needs now is the world cup trophy.
