4 reasons Lionel Messi is Most Overrated Player Of All Time


Sharing is caring!



1. If we rate player according to the mojo they bring to the game, Messi cannot ace Ronaldinho and Jay Jay Okocha. He cannot even come close to Ronaldo De Lima or Zinedine Zidane. No way.

The Phenomenon: Ronaldo De Lima.


2. If we rate players by the number of FIFA World Cup trophies, Messi would be in the same category with Yakubu Aiyegbeni of Nigeria who has never won one.

Aiyegbeni’s epic miss at the 2002 World Cup


3. If we rate players based on nations cup like trophies, Messi should be doing ‘yes, boss’ to Cristiano Ronaldo.

CR7 led Portugal to the 2016 European Championship title, something Messi has been unable to do for Argentina in South Africa


4. If we rate players based on the number of goals scored, here’s how Messi would rank:

  • Arthur Friedenreich – 1, 329 goals
  • Pele – 1,281 goals
  • Josef Bican – 805 goals
  • Romario – 743 goals
  • Gerd Muller – 711 goals
  • Ferenc Puskas – 700 goals
  • Eusebio – 621 goals
  • Cristiano Ronaldo – 600 goals
  • Ferenc Deak – 576 goals
  • Messi – 565 goals

Based on these facts, rating Messi above others players mentioned here is tantamount to overrating Messi.

Messi is great. Sure. But is he the greatest? Is he better than Ronaldo?
