WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT LIONEL MESSI?
Ø Rob Hughes
“I don’t know if you can say that, because what he did last year was just ridiculous.”
“I think he is maintaining what he was doing then. I mean he’s playing at a level like that.”
“Well, look I just don’t want him to stop,”
“Nobody at Barcelona wants him to stop playing like this. But it is kind of ridiculous what he’s doing.”
“He is just so amazing. It is a complete joy to see him playing like this.”
“Lionel Messi is currently the best player in the world. Fantastic and incredible, considering that he is only 22-years-old. You can effectively compare him with Maradona.”
Ø Thierry Henry
Sir Alex Ferguson’s protégé is in the form of his life though; there is no question about that. Deadly in the box, he has married a collection of predatory strikes with a catalogue of headed efforts. But they are not goals that cause jaws to drop in amazement and fans to forward on YouTube links with childish enthusiasm.
Messi, with his precocious dribbling skills, expert finishing, raw pace and brilliant football brain, scores such goals on a ridiculously regular basis. Moments that engage the imagination are his stock in trade, and he produced another on Wednesday night with that thrilling first goal.
Ø Christian Gross
“Lionel Messi is the best in the world. What he contributes with his talent makes him stand out. He could become the best player in history.”
Ø Victor Valdes
He is the best player in the world maybe the best player ever and all we can do is to enjoy him while we can and be thankful to be able to see his magic, Lionel Andrés Messi is just 22 years old but already the big name in the history books of FC Barcelona, Argentina and Football.
"Lionel Andrés Messi is the first and only player to score 2 continuous hat-tricks for FC Barcelona."
more and more trophy
Lionel Messi is the best for now and forever!
Keep up your good work. !!
