Some people believe that Lionel MESSI is one of the best ever.However still has to achieve things that others before him achived to be considered a legend.
Messi is surrounded by one of the most talented squads in in the world and the talent at Barcelona is a key factor in his constant rise and rise unlike Maradona. That is not to take anything away from the current world Player of the year.
However, MESSI has already scored 101 goals for Barcelona, becoming the youngest ever player in the history of the club to do so. Messi is truly great and has the talent and chance to be the best of the best but only time will tell.
Last week he became the youngest ever player in Barcelona’s history to score 100 goals for the club. He then bagged his 101st goal, in the 4-0 demolition of Sevilla.
In my opinion, MESSI is already a Legend. Those who keep comparing him with Maradona and claiming he has achieved nothing yet, should not expect him to win the wrold cup before he can earn their respect. I think what he has achieved so far, individually is enough to give him the respect he deserves. Barcelona Gaffer Pep GUARDIOLA has showered praises on the player when he paid tribute to the Argentine.

Outrageous indeed. There can be no doubt that Messi is currently the finest attacking player in the world. Period!
