NO CRISTIANO, NO MARADONA AND NO PELE: Andrés Iniesta chose the best football player in history

The legendary Andrés Iniesta, one of the best midfielders of all time, there is no doubt who is the GOAT.

In his participation in the Libero section TyC Sportsthe world champion placed Lionel Messi as #1 in the history of world football.

There will be those who prefer Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldo Nazário, Diego Armando Maradona, Pelé or Johan Cruyff, and it is valid and respectable. However, in his opinion, no one has played more than the current 10 Argentine national team members.


“I have no doubt that it is so (that Messi is the best in history), that he is number 1. I have not seen anyone who does the things that he does; not only what he does, but also what he creates in the team”.

Messi is becoming a better football player: “For me, the one before and this one now are different from all of them. For me, it’s number 1. It doesn’t matter if it was 10 years ago or now. The only thing he did was to grow, to improve himself, to make his teammates better. The team that has Leo has a very important point to achieve victories and titles”.

Will he return to FC Barcelona? “It’s never easy if you’ve already taken a step to get out. Then, if a situation can happen that Leo returns to Barca, of course it can happen. I don’t know if that will happen. But hey, it’s still a possibility.”

I have nothing more to add, Your Honor.

Data without defeat. Lionel Messi has scored 129 goals (11 short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record) and 39 assists (3 short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record) in 160 UEFA Champions League matches. crazy

Did you know…? Lionel Messi has amassed 784 goals and 343 assists in 992 games played in his senior career. More straight touchdowns (1,127) than games (992). Not even in FIFA.
