Lionel Scaloni: “Lionel Messi is the greatest ever.”

Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni spoke about Lionel Messi being the greatest player of all time after his country beat Croatia to book a place in the 2022 World Cup final.

If Lionel Messi is the greatest ever

“I think there is no doubt about it. It’s exciting to watch him. Every time you see him he generates something. It’s fortunate that he’s wearing La Albiceleste,” he said in quotes reported by Marca.

Argentina’s style

“Sometimes the opposition can subdue you and overpower you and that’s when they roll up their sleeves and regenerate. In the second half we suffered less. The strength is knowing how to face the game as it comes at any given moment.”

The coaching staff

“They live for the national team and suffer like the players and the fans. I know it’s difficult for non-Argentines to understand. I think we have found the right balance.”
