Way better than messi, just does not get the recognition he deserves because he was not the VERY BEST of his time, Pele was. He deserves the #1 spot, easily. messi is good, but maradona is better.

Easy choice, magical left...

2 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi (born 24 June 1987) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Imagine having the best playmaker, most divine dribbler and deadliest goalscorer, all in one player. So very simple (in my opinion). There has never been a player like MESSI... ever. There has never been someone who moves like him, who strides like him, who touches the ball like him. He is the best player ever. He has almost every record known to football. He has done things no one could even imagine.. The undisputed GOD of football of all times.

Wow. Any thing he does is for a reason. His game is magical and remarkable and his style of play us leagues above ant other. He has everything needed to make a remarkable player.

This list was just asking for Messi to be at the top.

Messi (aka the flea) all the way!

9 Mohamed Salah Mohamed Salah Hamed Mahrous Ghaly (born June 15, 1992) is an Egyptian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Liverpool and captains the Egypt national team.

Well Salah is amazing the ball goes on his feet like it wants him he reminds me a bit of pele's style of play but for me this man, this hero is greater then pele, messi, maradona, and Cristiano Ronaldo, This player this man is the greatest, he made it till here with hard word, and with god, and he'll complete till the end. He made it with his arm and will continue with his other arm.
