Messi doesn’t need World Cup to validate his ‘GOAT’ status – Christian Atsu

Former Black Stars player, Christian Atsu says Lionel Messi does not need a World Cup trophy to prove he is the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT).

His comment comes after Argentina’s qualification to the final of the ongoing FIFA World Cup.

The former Chelsea winger took to Twitter, stating that Messi has already proven that he is the greatest player ever and thus does not need to win the World Cup to validate the title.

“He doesn’t need the World Cup to prove he is the GOAT,” he wrote.
