The notion that Messi needs to go to England to prove that he is the best is ridiculous. He has the most Champions League goals in history against English teams with 20 in 28 games. Messi is just on another level. The greatest there is and the greatest there will ever be.- ¹⁰ (@ClinicaIEden) 4 October 2018
