Lionel Messi Names His Top Five Best Players In World Football Not Including Himself Or Cristiano Ronaldo

Lionel Messi has named his top five best players in world football with the Barcelona superstar excluding himself and Cristiano Ronaldo.


Messi told Spanish newspaper Marca his top five players in the world if he had to exclude himself and Ronaldo.

With Ronaldo no longer plying his trade in La Liga, Messi believes he's still in the top two with himself and that it was hard to see the Portuguese beat him to trophies while they were both in the same league for nine years.

"It was nice to have Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga because of the prestige he gave him, although it was hard to see him raise titles."

However, even though the Argentine excluded himself and Ronaldo, he still went onto name his top five players.

The star players being Neymar, Sergio Aguero, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard, and Luis Suarez.

Messi famously played part of Barcelona's trio known as 'MSN', the attacking trident of Messi, Suarez, and Neymar, which went onto win a treble together back in 2015.

Manchester City striker Aguero made Messi's cut with the duo playing countless times together for the Argentinian national team.

While Mbappe and Hazard have never played together competitively on the same team, with Hazard only sharing the same League last season when the Belgian signed for Real Madrid in July 2019.

"[But] excluding him and me, the best players in the world are Mbappe, Neymar, Hazard, Suarez and Kun [Aguero]."
