messi

It’s a question that will raise all sorts of debates and arguments but Lionel Messi has become Barcelona’s all-time leading goal scorer with 234 goals … at the age of 24 … but is he the best player of all time?

There’s an argument that it’s impossible to compare him to the likes of Pelé, Cruyff, Maradona and Best because football has changed so much with the professional era, but regardless of era, his tally of goals is still staggering, averaging 2.8 goals per game.

He has won every domestic honour possible with Barcelona, who are close to being the greatest club side of all time, but he is still missing a World Cup winners medal with his beloved Argentina.

Can he really be classed as the greatest when he hasn’t achieved the greatest honour in the game?
