When he hangs up his boots one day, or maybe only decades later, we’ll really understand. We’ll live decades, realizing that no one quite matches what he did. Then we’ll look at the Youtube clips and documentaries made of him, and say “goodness, he was amazing. He scored more than anyone. He won more than anyone.” And maybe then the collective will realize that they won’t see a greater player in their lifetime.

Well said. Only then will they realised what they’ve lost.

"We gave absolutely everything, but it wasn’t enough to win the cup. But we think that, maybe, we still gave the fans some joy. We went to Brazil with many doubts, but we came back stronger than ever. We will keep on working hard to bring joy to the country."

I feel angry when they say I do not feel “La Albiceleste”. As a kid I only dreamed of playing in the First division in Argentina, to put on “La Albiceleste”, nothing gives me more enthusiasm. I think like an Argentine and I live in Catalunya, but I feel very Argentine. For one it is difficult to talk about feelings, so how can they come to tell me what I feel? I don’t mind them calling me “El Catalan” but it angers me that people think I’m not Argentine”

HAPPY 27th BIRTHDAY LEO!!

"I feel sorry for those who want to compete for Messi’s throne; it’s impossible, this kid is unique."  Pep Guardiola.

"Once he’s on a run with the ball he’s unstoppable… He’s like a PlayStation. He can take advantage of every mistake we make." — Arsène Wenger, 6 April 2010

"I have seen the player who will inherit my place in Argentine football and his name is Messi"— Diego Maradona, February 2006

"For the world of football, he  is a treasure because he is a role model for children around the world. In the space of half a meter, he can move right or left - it is like he has the ball attached to his body. Maradona was also a little bit like this, and it could be because they are both low center of gravity."—Johan Cruyff March 2012
