The best soccer player of all time. Lionel was born in Romario, Argentina, and plays for FC Barcelona. He may be standing at a mere 5'7, but his amazing skill makes up for it. Most people love him, but all 11 Real Madrid thinks he sucks. Shut up and realize that he is better than Ronaldo. He has not YET won a world cup, but we are all rooting for him in June!!!!
Real Madrid fan: Hey, did you see that amazing play Ronaldo

Random Kid: Oh, you mean that tap in 2 inches from the goal, if you want to watch a real play, watch
Barcelona's game tomorrow so you can see Lionel Messi

the biggest fraud in the history of football, flopped 4 international finals and goes missing in the champions league (CL) once his team faces another elite team, prefers to stat-pad against the likes of getafe and osasuna which inflates his stats and perpetuates hyperbolic propaganda on the internet from the likes of Gary Lineker, B/R Football, Messi Magic, and others of the likes

any criticism of him is witch hunted by his fans, best advised to not have a debate with any of them if the topic is Messi vs Ronaldo as they project the most degenerate football knowledge on the internet
Messi libtard: But Penaldo is only a goalscorer11 Lionel Messi is a goalscorer and a playmkaer11
smart fan: that logic is poor, there's plenty of footballers that take up the role of both goalscorer/playmaker and had ballon d'or level stats that aren't considered better than Messi, peak Baggio for example, also it's unfair to say Ronaldo doesn't do enough collectively when Ronaldo's assigned position, restricts that very opportunity. Also also, Ronaldo doesn't have to playmake to be considered more "complete" than Messi as he's involved in a ton of other ways like aeriel threat, runs, counter, WF, etc...

He is the former 6 ballon d'Or winner, even playing completely like Lingard in the 2019 season, he still won the ballon d'Or, he is known for being addicted to a substance, which is called bottling in the Champions League, like in those games:

Roma 4x4 Roma win on away goals
Liverpool 4x3 aggregate
Juventus 3x0 in aggregates
Bayern 8x2
Recently he has caught covid-19...or he is just playing that bad.

Messi was part of the best front 3 to ever exist, it consisted in Messi, Suárez and Neymar Jr, the MSN trio, after the 2016-2017 UCL Neymar couldn't stand Barça bottling in the UCL and moved to PSG...but he moved mainly because of THE SHIT TON OF CASH HE WOULD GET.

In 2020 Ronald Koeman terminated Luis Suárez contract and Messi clearly wanted a move after that, which he didn't get, he stayed at Barça, so he is like: FUCK YOU, and i will see you tomorrow.
1-Duuude, I did great in the test!
2-Good for you, I did a *Lionel Messi*...
1-Oh so you flopped...what grade?
2-I did an entire Barça...
1-Ok, so you got a 2?
1-Oh cool, I got an 8.
