The legend of English football said that makes Messi the best player in the world

Former England striker Gary Lineker, now working as a football expert and commentator for the BBC, said, what characteristics make the forward of Barcelona Lionel Messi is the best footballer in the world.

“Messi scored his 600th goal to beat Atletico and, of course, to make another step to the victory of Barcelona in La Liga. If he was just a scorer, then that would be amazing, but it still is the best dribbler I have ever seen, and a great assistant, giving beautiful passes I have ever seen. All this makes him the best player I have ever seen!”, – Lineker wrote on his Twitter page.

Messi scored his 600th goal to beat Atletico and surely clinch La Liga for @FCBarcelona. If he were just a goal scorer it would be astonishing, but the fact he’s also the best dribbler I’ve ever seen and as good a passer as I’ve ever seen makes him the best I’ve ever seen. 🐐— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) March 4, 2018.
