Conmable declares Messi the ‘ruler of world football’ Lionel Messi is the best footballer in the world in terms of winning trophies or field performance. He cannot be left behind even in the question of the best of all time. After winning the World Cup in Qatar, the Argentinian star, whose career was fulfilled, received the title of ‘World Football Ruler’ from the South American Football Confederation (Conmable) in recognition of the fact that he is sitting on the highest football seat.
On Monday (March 27), CONMEBOL President Alejandro Dominguez awarded the title to Messi.

However, the path was not always smooth, he said. He believes that success has been achieved by chasing dreams, ‘I have had to travel a long way. There have been many turns and defeats on that path. But I always looked ahead and wanted to achieve success, wanted victory. I think the most important thing is to chase the dream, fight to make everything possible and enjoy the game, which is the most beautiful.’
