Portugal legend, Luis Figo, has called Argentina captain Lionel Messi one of the greatest players of all time.
This is what Figo, the Real Madrid legend, said before Argentina’s 2022 World Cup match against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
He also insisted that the Paris Saint-Germain striker is the best player of the last decade.
“Messi is one of the greatest players of all time and the best player of the last decade,” Figo said on India’s Sports 18 TV channel.
Messi led Argentina to win the Copa America last year.
The former Barcelona captain hopes to lead Argentina to victory in this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
