Messi Doesn’t Need World Cup To Prove He Is The GOAT – Christian Atsu

Lionel Messi, according to Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu, does not need to win the FIFA World Cup to prove he is the greatest footballer of all time.

Atsu believes the Argentina international has already done enough to establish himself as the greatest footballer of all time.

As a result, he now has the most goals (five, tied with Kylian Mbappe) and assists (three) in the tournament.

On Twitter, Atsu commented on Messi’s magical performance against Croatia, saying the PSG star doesn’t need a World Cup trophy to prove he’s the greatest.

“He doesn’t need the World Cup to prove he is the GOAT. Messi,” the former Newcastle United winger tweeted.

Meanwhile, Messi has indicated that the 2022 World Cup will be his last for Argentina, hinting at retiring from international duty.

“I am very happy for finishing my journey in World Cups in a final, to play the last game in a final. That is really very gratifying,” he stated after the win over Croatia.
“Everything I lived in this World Cup has been emotional, seeing how much it has been enjoyed in Argentina.

“There are a lot of years from this year to the next one. I don’t think I will be able to do that. To finish this way is brilliant
On winning the World Cup trophy, he said: “We are going to do our best, as we have done up until now, so that this time it really happens – we really win it.

“I have been enjoying it the past few years, being with the national side. I am really enjoying everything that is happening to us.

“To get the Copa America, to reach the World Cup with 36 games unbeaten, and to finish all that trajectory in a final is just incredible.

“I hope the people in Argentina enjoy themselves and what we are doing. They shouldn’t doubt we are giving absolutely everything.”
