Lionel Messi 

Messi began his professional footballing career with Newell’s Old Boys before being signed by FC Barcelona. Messi became the icon that he is today while playing for the Catalan club, where he won everything there was to win at the club level and served as the talisman for the team.

Messi has won 10 La Liga championships, seven Copa del Rey championships, and four UEFA Champions League championships while playing for FC Barcelona. In addition to that, he holds the record for most goals scored and assists in the history of FC Barcelona. Another record that he owns, this time for La Liga. The record for most goals scored in a single season in La Liga is currently held by Lionel Messi, who has 50 goals during the 2011-12 campaign. His 93 goals scored in 2012 set a new record for the most goals scored in a calendar year across all of the major football leagues. In addition, he has taken home the Pichichi medal as well as the European Golden Shoe a total of six times. Not to mention his monopoly on the Ballon d’Or, since Messi has taken home the trophy seven times in his career.


There is never a lack of discussion regarding the topic of who the best football player of all time is. Pele was the first player to ever get the honour unconditionally, and many who have seen him play consider him to be the best player who has ever lived.

To begin, he is the first player in the history of the sport to ever win three FIFA World Cups. He made his debut when he was just 17 years old and went on to play a pivotal role in his country’s first-ever victory in the tournament. After that, Pele won the World Cup in both 1962 and 1970, the latter of which earned him the distinction of being named the tournament’s most outstanding player. It is important to keep in mind that the squad that won the World Cup in 1970 is widely regarded as the finest football team in international competition.

Pele was a feared goal-scorer, as seen by his record, in addition to his astounding talent with the ball. His record reveals that he scored an incredible number of goals. Pele amassed a total of 1281 goals for his club team while playing in a total of 1363 games, as reported by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics. Despite the fact that Brazil has produced some outstanding offensive players like Ronaldo, Rivaldo, and Neymar, he is still Brazil’s all-time greatest scorer in terms of goals scored.

Pele’s reputation is as strong as ever, despite the fact that he was never a player for a European team. Every football player in the world harbours the hope that one day they will be able to emulate him, making him the “ghost” that all of the contemporary greats in the game are attempting to outdo.

Diego Maradona 

In 1986, Argentina was victorious in the World Cup for the last time, and ‘El Magico’, Diego Armando Maradona, was the player who drove the team to victory.

Maradona was the embodiment of the maverick spirit; he was revered by many for his extraordinary skill, but he was also infamous for his explosive temper. He was able to dribble past other players with the ease of a hot knife through butter. On a daily basis, he was capable of producing moments of magic and could single out a teammate with a spectacular pass that would leave the opposition’s defence speechless.

Maradona began his professional career with Boca Juniors, but it was when he was playing for FC Barcelona and Napoli that he became famous across the globe. His moves to both teams were global records at the time, and the Argentine superstar was successful enough at both clubs to win league championships.
