Felipe Melo names Messi among three best players in football history


Former Brazil midfielder, Felipe Melo has named Argentina’s Lionel Messi among three best players in football history.

Melo put the Inter Miami captain on the same pedestal as late legends, football icons Pele and Diego Maradona.

Messi is going strong for club and country despite being on the wrong side of 30.

Having led Argentina to their third World Cup title last year in Qatar, the 36-year-old recently won a record-extending eighth Ballon d’Or award in 2023.

“Brazil play against the world champion, and they have Messi, who for me is the best player in history with Pele and Maradona.” Melo said (as per Ole).

“Messi doesn’t have the speed he had a few years ago, but he has much more vision of the game

“Messi is still the best player in the world. It is crazy, it is awesome.”
