World Cup winning coach with Spain in 2010 and Euro winner in 2012, Vicente del Bosque has coached some of the best players in the world. Now former coach, del Bosque spoke with TyC Sports about Lionel Messi and his place in history. Here’s what he had to say:
“Messi is a player from the neighborhood, from the streets. He has a vision of the game, a dominance and a dribble that is not seen in today’s world. And he does it where he needs to do it, which is near or in the penalty area. He’s presently the best player in the world.”
Del Bosque also commented on the never ending Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona debate.
“Messi was a great heir to Maradona and I think he has already surpassed the master.
“Messi is the best player of all time. Maybe someone can refute it.”
