Fan creates brilliant 'Only Lionel Messi has more' Twitter thread

FBL-EUR-GOLDEN SHOE-AWARD

Lionel Messi collected his third consecutive European Golden Shoe award this week after his 36 La Liga goals last season.

The Argentine superstar has now won six Golden Shoes, two more than any other player in history.

But that’s just one of many stats that Messi has collected during his illustrious career.

In January, Messi could pick up a record-breaking sixth Ballon d'Or that would take him one clear of rival Cristiano Ronaldo. It would surely establish Messi as the greatest of all time.

But perhaps the GOAT debate has already been decided.

One Barcelona fan has compiled dozens of incredible statistics in a Twitter thread called ‘Only Lionel Messi has more.’

In almost all of the tweets in the thread - many of which date back years - contain the words ‘only Lionel Messi has more.’

Here's a pick of some of the best ones:

It just goes to show that no matter how well other players are playing - or how incredible their stats are - they are almost always behind Messi.

But Messi isn’t the kind of player to boast about being the greatest of all-time.

Instead, he’d rather people spoke about him rather than him speaking about himself.

"I'd rather people talk about me. I know what I am, what I did and what I can give, but I keep it to myself," he told Marca. "People can have their say. I don't like to talk about myself, I like to talk about the collective."
