Lionel Messi, over the years has become one of the top soccer super star in the history of world football, where many football fans across the globe calls him “FOOTBALL GOD”.
This has raised the concerns of the current 266th Roman Catholic Pope Francis, condemning people who calls Lionel Messi a ‘God’. Indeed he was not too enthusiastic about drawing comparisons with the Supreme being.
The Pope, in an interview over the weekend, insisted Lionel Messi, is nothing compared to God. In his speech he said;
“I don’t. People can say he is God, just as they may say. I adore him because God has given him the talent to be a great footballer. But only can be worshiped”.
We can all adhere to the sayings of the holy Pope, that Messi is just a talented being & not God as many may say.
