Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti, has dismissed the notion that the Argentine, Lionel Messi is the best player in the world ever.
The Italian made this statement during a press conference on Thursday in Spain.
According to him, there have been many greats like Diego Maradona, Alfredo Di Stefano and Johann Cruyff, who have played the game.
He said: “Messi the best in history? He’s a great player but I can’t say who’s been the best.
“There have been so many wonderful players… Maradona, Di Stéfano, Cruyff.. I don’t know.”
There was speculation prior to the World Cup in Qatar that whosoever wins the trophy between Lionel Messi and Ronaldo would put the GOAT debate to bed.
However, Messi reached the finals and won the trophy, he also finished as tournament’s Most Valuable Player, (MVP)
But some football fanatics are still of the belief that Messi is not the greatest of all time despite winning the World Cup.
