Lionel Messi is a living legend.
Do not take your word for it. We have proof.
The man joined world football almost 15 years ago and in that time he has won 6 out of the 14 Ballon d’Ors dished out. That is right. Out of a million players who participate in professional football, one man has won almost 50% of those trophies.
Back in 2011-12, he spent the calendar year scorin 91 goals. Yes. He played less than 70 matches and score 91 goals in La Liga, Champions League, Copa America qualifiers, Copa Del Rey. Record. Unmatched and unlikely to be matched.
He has a free-kick accuracy where he has alone scored more free-kicks than entire teams like Manchester United, Juventus, Real Madrid.
So is he a player who is the best? We think so. However, that is not all. He is a captain, a leader who inspires. He is not the sole player who only plays for himself. He makes his teams win. Be it carrying the below average Argentina team to a World Cup final or making Barcelona win hte last 7 out of 10 league titles.
He has now achieved yet another team record – 500 wins with Barcelona.
