quote by Carles Puyol

Leo Messi is a spectacular player, there is nobody else like him. I should not because I have suffered so much in training. I think he is the best forward at the moment and I think he will be so for many more years. He has his feet on the ground.

— Carles Puyol

Fascinating Leo Messi quotations

Little by little, Leo [Messi] and I are understanding each other better.

Cristiano reminds me of German tennis player Michael Stich.

He was destined to make history, but then Boris Becker showed up. Cristiano is so fast, so strong, so incredible, but he has one problem: Leo Messi.

Who is the Best Player in the World? Leo Messi. Who is the Best Player Ever? Leo Messi!

Leo [Messi] is the best player of all time - better than Pele, Maradona or Cruyff. There have been some great teams in history - Pele's Brazil, Cruyff's Ajax, Sacchi's Milan - but in the past 20 years this Barcelona team is the best.

Ronaldinho is better than Cristiano Ronaldo, but neither are as good as Leo Messi. He holds numerous records, such as the most goals scored in a single La Liga season and the most goals scored in a calendar year. I'm more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. He has everything. We must protect him.


Who is the Best Player in the World? Leo Messi.

If you're speaking of a fantasy player, then it has to be Leo Messi as he's so unpredictable. He's an absolute genius.

I've got a magnificent relationship with Leo (Messi) and Ney (Neymar).

They drive the team, with Andres Iniesta as well - what a player. You know if you have a good relationship with them off the pitch it will be that way on the pitch too. They took it as a sign that I had come to help them, not to compete with them.

I'm not envious of Leo [Messi]or Ney [Neymar].

Why would I be? If there is envy in the dressing room, you know it's only going to affect results.

Ronaldinho is better than Cristiano Ronaldo, but neither are as good as Leo Messi.


Everyday Leo Messi surprises us with something different.

I believe that we have the first genius of the 21st century, Leo Messi.

The best player EVER (Leo Messi) without a shadow, if you didn't think/know already.

It's not easy, being the best at what he does but still having the humility and desire to be close to those around him. In private, Messi is a great leader, a great captain. Usually the best in any area see things differently but in this case Leo is still an ordinary person and that makes our relationship work. He's the leader of ARG, he has helped us to reach two finals in one year. I have great respect for Messi the person and player.

Every time he plays, Leo Messi reminds me more of Maradona, both left-footed and short, Messi is the best player in the world, along with Kaká and Cristiano Ronaldo. For us it is not a surprise. Since he began to come and train with us and we knew we would go down this path. Someday I will explain that I was at the birth of one of the footballing greats: Leo Messi.
