For sale at-Barcelona Midfielder Ramon Caldere has kept Lionel Messi in the list of the top three footballers of all time, stating PSG Humans cannot be compared. Caldere, who traded at Barcelona in the 80s, has kept Messi alongside Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff on his list of all-time greats.
The act of comparing former legends with current superstars is a daunting task. Lionel Messi regularly finds himself ahead of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski. However, that is hardly the extent of it. The Argentine is also pitted against players from the past.
Lionel Messi rarely talks about the comparisons he faces every day. The superstar keeps his head down and focused on being the best version of himself. Caldere also thinks that comparing Messi to others, including Maradona, doesn’t make much sense.
Speaking to Infobae, Caldere admitted that he hasn’t seen Brazilian legend Pele play and therefore did not consider him on his roster.
Discussing football’s best ever players, Caldere said:
“There is no comparison at all. Of the people that I have seen, the three best in history are: Messi, Maradona and Cruyff. When Pele competed, I was very young and I didn’t have many references. I’ve seen all three play close together.”
Messi spent 21 years at Barcelona, 16 of which was a senior player for the team. He scored 672 goals and provided 301 assists during his career at Barcelona before moving to PSG in August 2021.
