|It's time we had a dedicated Messi thread. Aged 24 Messi just won his 3rd Ballon D'Or award. The only people to equal that are Cruyff, Platini and Van Basten. It's hard to imagine Messi winning less than 5.
I think Messi is well on the way to becoming, at worst, the 2nd greatest player of all time. He's easily to compare to Maradona, and his career is clearly more impressive at this point in time. He's too young for the media to widely speak of him as the GOAT, but as the years progress I think there's going to be little doubt.
His story is very cool. He had a growth defect, and was 4"10 aged 13. River Plate in Argentina refused to pay his $900/mo treatment, but, via relatives, Messi was able to arrange a trial at Barcelona. Barcelona sporting director Carles Rexach offered him a contract, written on a napkin, on the spot, later saying "In two minutes, I saw his speed, his skill and decided we would sign him."
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
