Previous Chelsea striker Didier Drogba said something regarding the GOAT banter and expressed that Lionel Messi isn’t the best ever as he named two legends who are in front of the PSG superstar.
Messi is without a doubt one of the best the game has at any point had. Some even accept the 34-year old is awesome of all-time.
Nonetheless, the discussion shows anytime of finishing anytime soon as others lean toward Cristiano Ronaldo or different names.
Messi is the main player in football history with seven Ballon d’Or and the second most named player with 39 prizes behind Dani Alves who has 43.
Regardless of all his own and individual records, Drogba said he isn’t the best ever (GOAT).
“Messi could stop now and he would as of now have done a great deal for football. To win a World Cup would make him significantly more legendary. He’s a phenomenal player!”, Drogba told AFP in 2018, according to 101 Great Goals.
“He’s as yet not at the levels of Maradona and Pele, but rather he’s not far away.”
Didier Drogba played against Lionel Messi during a game among Chelsea and FC Barcelona during UEFA Champions league in 2012.
In front of the experience, then Chelsea director Di Matteo named Messi among the players to keep an eye out cautiously and the entire storage space began chuckling.
“Robbie Di Matteo did what he generally did and set up a rundown of the rival team’s top scorers. Usually, the rundown would peruse something as per Rooney – 22 goals; Van Persie – 15, etc”, Drogba said, according to SPORTbible.
“At the point when the Barcelona list went up, sufficiently certain, in third put was Xavi on 14, in equivalent runner up were Alexis Sánchez and Cesc Fàbregas on 15, yet we as a whole chuckled when the top scorer came up on the screen – Lionel Messi on … 63 goals, 14 in the Champions League alone!
“Yet, 63 that season? It was such a crazy figure that we took a gander at one another in dismay and snickered – what else might we at some point do? I even snapped a photo of the number since it was so crazy.”
