Barcelona v River Plate: Talking Points

Messi the greatest ever still an argument?

Leo Messi became the first player ever to score in all six club competitions in a single year, twice (2011, 2015). He also became the only player in the sports history to score in all the 7 official possible competitions in a year (including the Copa America). Now on his way to his record fifth Ballon D’or and with several other piles of individual and collective records to his name, the question of him being the greatest ever seem to be becoming more and more on the unarguable side with every passing match now.

This quote from former Barca and the current Bayern coach Pep Guardiola describes everything about Messi : “Don’t write about him, don’t try to describe him, just watch him.”
