I concede. Lionel Messi is THE best footballer in the world right now, with no exception.
Rooney may have more tenacity and strength. Ronaldo may be better with his headers and freekicks. Torres may be a more clinical finisher and a better looker… but none of them comes close (maybe only Ronaldo) to the magical skills of the duminitive Argentine.
For him, there is not need for brute strength, nor the need to shoot rocket freekicks or fly in the air to meet the crosses. All he needs is to shuffle his little feet and leaves everybody chasing his shadows … reminiscient of a certain DMaradona.
Just look at the way he scored his third goal against Arsenal this morning, a sublime chip over the ‘keeper while running at full speed. Speechless…
Simply THE best
