Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain is the player who is impossible to mark on the field of play, according to former Manchester City defender Micah Richards.
Messi is a football player who, according to Richards, possesses every single attribute.
With an outstanding first-half display in PSG's Champions League 1-1 draw with Benfica on Wednesday, Messi once again dazzled the football world.
In the 22nd minute, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner scored a lovely goal by curling the ball past goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos.
Many often tout the Argentine captain as the greatest of all time, and Richards has joined the list of football names who believe he is a fully rounded player.
He spoke on CBS Sports Golazo during PSG’s clash with Benfica, saying: “If you are a defender up against him, he’s impossible to mark." You can try and go tight and he will run in behind you.
“You drop off, he pops up in a little number 10 position. His passing... He’s got absolutely everything as a player! "
