Former Barcelona defender Carles Puyol claims that for a few more years, Catalan forward Lionel Messi will play at the top level. Now Messi is 33, he’s taking care of himself.
“Leo is inspired and filled with desire. I assume that if he prevents serious injuries and continues to play with the same willingness to improve and win, he will play at this level for another 3-4 years,” Puyol told Goal.
“When he was young, Messi was really sweet. He was the kind of player to whom the ball was given, after which they demonstrated individual skill. He gave outcomes and scored.”
“Messi was already very good at the time, but he’s become an even more outstanding player over the years, the best in history.”
