FC BARCELONA | LIONEL MESSI 2011 | ALL HAIL THE KING

The Football World has rendered itself to the feet of FC BARCELONA Argentine forward LIONEL MESSI. Spanish Football press & media have dedicated covers & pages to the player as he once again put in a brilliant performance & goal to help FC Barcelona win 3 - 1 Manchester United in the Champions League Final.

The "magician" yesterday placed himself in the Olympus of the Football Gods: Di Stefano, Pele, Cruyff & Maradona, leaving his stamp without any doubt that he is the "Best Player in World Football" & heading towards the "ALL-TIME" status. The man is only 23 years of age & none of the above mentioned "Football Gods" had so many titles as Messi has at his age. The only title missing that would put LIONEL MESSI in the solitary position of the "Greatest ever Football Player in History" would be a World Cup Championship title with Argentina, & that is a real possiblity  in the next coming 12 years.
