Lionel Messi's Mesmerising Passes Compiled Into One Video To 'Prove' Why He’s The Best Playmaker Of All Time
Lionel Messi's incredible passing ability has been turned into a compilation by one fan to 'prove' why he is the best playmaker of all time.
The 33-year-old Argentine forward scored 31 times and registered a whopping 26 assists across all competitions last season.
And now Messi's mesmerising passes to his Barcelona teammates, both past and present, show how exceptional he is in dictating a match.
"Ray Hudson said Messi doesn't have ordinary eyes, he has zoom eyes. He sees the game differently, like he's watching it from above," one fan said.
Another tweeted: "[Luis] Suarez should be on like 1,000 goals right now, but he missed like 600 clear chances alone in this video."
And a third posted: "And to think this guy is also the greatest goalscorer of all time. You can always prefer other players but in terms of playing this game, no-one comes close to the perfection of this man."

While a fourth added: "People don't realise how difficult it is to dictate play and still be the guy to score the most goals, get the most assists all the while being the best dribbler on the field. Most players switch between the ranks. Messi has been at the top of all four his entire career."
Messi, who made a U-turn on his Barcelona exit earlier this month, has admitted himself that he thinks more of himself in a playmaking role over a goalscoring one.
"I think less and less about scoring goals," he told La Liga on DAZN in January.
"I'm starting to step back more and more to be the creator rather than the one who finishes.
"Obviously, I like scoring and if have a chance I'll take it, but every time I go on to the pitch I'm less focused on scoring goals and more focused on the game. I've never been obsessed with goals.
"I understand that people will talk about it when I stop scoring so many, but that's part of the game, part of growing as a player and adapting to the times, to be the best player both for yourself and for the team."
