After the victory of the selection of Argentina about his similar of Croatia In the semifinals of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Mexican journalist, david faitelsonsent a message addressed to the captain of the Albiceleste, Lionel Messi.
Faitelson posted a video on his Twitter account in which he praised the Argentine star, whom he believes can only be compared to footballers of the stature of Maradona or Pelé.
“It’s Messi and only Messi. It’s incredible the form and the level that this footballer maintains, one of the best, not of our time but of many times. To assess what Messi has done, it would be necessary to compare him, not with any footballer in the current or recent times. No. The only valid and respectful comparison for Messi is to put him at the level and equate him with Maradona, Pelé, Cruyff, that class of footballers,” he said.
The journalist added that Messi “reappeared, put the Argentine team on his shoulders and has participated directly and deeply in what has been this Argentine pass to the grand final of Qatar 2022. An Argentina that has come from less to more, always inspired by Messi”.
Faitelson even dared to say that the current Argentina team would be “an ordinary team” if Messi were not in their ranks.
“If Messi were not there, it must be said like it is, Argentina would not be in the final. If you take Messi away from this team, it is a combative team, a team that has good players, we saw the case of Julián Álvarez, what he contributes Rodrigo De Paul, the defense has improved a lot from that opening match of the World Cup against Saudi Arabia, but it’s an ordinary team, just like Maradona’s ’86 team was, but Messi makes the difference.”
“And we’re really lucky to see who could be, why not, the best player…the best footballer of all time,” Faitelson concluded.
