Could Messi be the best ever?
Messi – good. But that good?
After Messi’s brilliant weekend hat-trick, the Barcelona goalkeeper, Victor Valdes said this:
“Messi is already the best player in the world, but he can become the best ever.”
He might have a point. As things stand, that particular “greatest ever” crown seems to belong to either Pele or Maradona by consensus, although no one will ever quite agree on which. The Spoiler tends to lean towards Maradona, but would happily throw Michael Laudrup, Zinedine Zidane, and Garrincha into the debate too.
But what do YOU think? Is Messi the greatest ever? Does he need to win a World Cup first? Let us know with a vote and a comment.
