Former Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch has made it clear that he would ever cherish the chance to have played on the same pitch with Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
And that was in the Champions League in 2007 when the Englishman was playing for Liverpool where he came one on one with the Argentina international.
Peter Crouch who was known for his superb goal-scoring ability with his head during his active playing days stated emphatically that Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of all time.
The 38-year-old added that he will be happy to tell his grandchildren that he shared a pitch with Lionel Messi.
“There will come a point when I am able to tell my grandchildren that I shared a pitch with Messi.
“I will tell them repeatedly because he is the greatest footballer of all time,”. Crouch told The Daily Mail.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are regarded as the best footballers at least for the last ten years considering what these two players have achieved.
They have both won the Ballon d’Or five times each and they are still in the running for the 2019 edition of the crown.
But this time around, Lionel Messi will face serious competition from seven Liverpool players for the Ballon d’Or
Meanwhile, the only trophy these two players have not lifted in their careers is the FIFA World Cup.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Lionel Messi made a striking confession after revealing he does not want a life contract at Camp Nou despite his desire to remain at Barcelona.
The 32-year-old’s future at the club remains uncertain when club President Josep Bartomeu revealed that their captain has a clause in his contract which enables him to leave at the end of the season.
