Lionel Messi never became world champion. Lionel Messi has never played in England. Lionel Messi thanks to Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta as strong. No matter what the year, the Argentine, and the option to won world footballer of the criticism was there and it was loud, especially from the camp of the Spanish capital. Finally, his direct predecessor Ronaldinho, Fabio Cannavaro and Kaká became the champion, finally, Cristiano Ronaldo has proved himself in England. And, the thing with Xavi and Iniesta.
Now, Messi still plays for Barcelona and has not been world champion yet, he won the Copa America, the South American counterpart to the European championship, maybe he will do the never. But at least the latter Argument is slowly but surely obsolete. Because Xavi and Iniesta are gone, as are the Brazilians Neymar, Messi mind magnificently.
Messi, however, is still there and he is as good as ever. Or in Numbers:
Since Xavi's departure in 2015 (to Al Sadd, Qatar) has Messi scored in 193 Games 181 goals. Since neymar's departure in 2017 (Paris St Germain) has Messi scored in 92 Games 82 goals. Since Iniesta's finish in 2018 (to Vissel Kobe, Japan) has Messi in 38 Games scored 41 goals.
Best shooter, best passer
it could also be translated in the titles of the FC Barcelona . The Blaugrana have won without Xavi twice, the Spanish League, and three times the Cup without Neymar the Double by 2018, and also without Iniesta it is on the way to this. Plus: In the Champions League, Barça is still in, it's waiting in the quarter-final again in the Form of come to Manchester United.
In La Liga scored by Messi 31 goals in 27 Games. So he is number 1 in Spain, far ahead of colleague Luis Suárez and Cristhian Stuani. The five-time world footballer not only benefits from one or two brilliant partners, but from an Armada of good time parents: the Five Assists he has from Suarez to get four of Arturo Vidal, the three of Jordi Alba and Ivan Rakitic. With his 14 Assists, Messi is also the best passer in the League.
There are such Numbers, the followers around the world tempt, to see Messi a God or to compare it at least with such. This is even noticed is Pope Francis. The Football fan – the Team is San Lorenzo and Messi's country man can do this but not very much. This is just a popular way of expressing themselves, he said recently.
of Course, Messi is very good, added the head of the Catholic Church, but "theoretically, it's a sacrilege to refer to him as God". (mro)
