Don’t get Messi mad. If you do, he will show you who’s boss, even if it’s just practice. What does Messi say, give me the ball!
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the world’s greatest footballers, but who’s the best soccer player of all-time? For some football legends, the debate will never end and the two players are pretty much equals.
However, Thierry Henry tells a story of a furious Lionel Messi getting fouled in training back when they played together for Barcelona in 2009 and the foul wasn’t given so an angry Messi dribbled through the whole Barcelona team.
Henry: “I respect Cristiano Ronaldo – but Messi is the best in the world”. And what’s amazing about Messi is he is so consistently good. He just wants to keep getting better, which is crazy to say, but he does. He wasn’t always good at free kicks so he master that, for example. Messi’s drive and desire to win is really what makes him the world’s best football player.
