Football has experienced many different eras. The likes Diego Armando Maradona, Ronaldinho Gaucho, Johan Cruyff, Ronaldo Nazario and more have all passed through the pitch. The current and most greatest era of football is the Messi and Ronaldo era. Lionel Messi has been one of the most talked about footballers over the years. He is a six time ballon d'or winner. He is from Argentina and plays in Spain for Barcelona.
His outstanding performance on and off the pitch is what makes people love him much. He has broken and set many records since he started playing football. So has he destroyed many footballers across the world with his skill set. One of the best defenders in the world currently is Virgil Van Dijk. Having faced Messi in the Champions League two years ago, he explained how much difficult it is to defenders against the player. He continued to shower praises on him for his performance.
In an interview, when he was asked about Messi, this is what he had to say. He said,"There is no answer to Messi. No one has an answer for the best player in the world. I'm just glad I don't play in Spain to face him every season".
