Gary Lineker Perfectly Sums Up Lionel Messi's Brilliance

Gary Lineker Perfectly Sums Up Lionel Messi's Brilliance

So much have we run out of ways to describe Lionel Messi that even saying we've run out of ways to describe him has become so over used. Despite that Gary Lineker did a pretty good job of doing it.

He might be 30 but Barcelona's all time top scorer isn't exactly slowing down. This season he's helped steer Barca to the top of La Liga by scoring 24 goals with his latest coming today.

He scored a free kick against Atletico Madrid to secure a 1-0 win against their title rivals which just happened to be his 600th goal for the club.

Messi has already won eight La Liga titles, five Copa del Reys and four Champions Leagues in his career to date, as well as a number of other trophies, and he could add another to all three of those this season alone.

Some still question his record in World Cups and if he and Argentina were to win in Russia this summer then there'd surely be no doubts as to if he's the greatest player ever.
