We move to the player whom people already say is the best ever, but his career still hasn’t finished in order to make that assessment.

Lionel Messi has won it all at a club level, he hasn’t been that lucky with his national team.

From the very start of his romance with a football, Leo was seen in the streets of Argentina as a small boy with the same style of play he has today.

Messi could’ve been smaller than he is if he hadn’t taken that medical hormone treatment, this allowed him to grow a little more but he still remained on the shorter side.

Regardless of his stature, Messi already is one of the best ever.
