The former Bayern star believes the World Cup trophy is the only thing missing in Leo’s illustrious career.
He concedes only Pele and Diego Maradona could be comparable to Barca’s marksman
“I’d be delighted if Messi won the World Cup because then he could call himself the best player in history,” Brazil legend Ze Roberto has told TyC Sports.
The former Bayern Munich player added: “It’s the only thing he’s missing in his career.
Messi is one of the best players in football history alongside Pele and [Diego] Maradona.”
The Barcelona legend has taken part in four World Cup tournaments during his illustrious career but failed to win the trophy.
He came really close in 2014 when his Argentina were beaten by Germany in the final thanks to Mario Gotze’s goal in the extra time.
