Messi in the list of 100 most influential people in the world. Messi has won everything possible in club and international football. He also claimed the remaining World Cup last December. At such a time, the star of PSG got a place in the list of the 100 most influential people of the American magazine “Time”.
The 100 most influential names were released Thursday (April 13) on Time’s website. Messi’s name is also there. Meanwhile, Roger Federer, one of the greatest tennis players of all time, wrote about Messi.
Federer, winner of 20 Grand Slams, wrote, ‘There is no reminiscence about Messi’s goalscoring record and title wins. What is most striking to me about the 35-year-old Messi is his continued greatness for so many years. It is as difficult to achieve as it is to maintain. His awareness and precognition are beyond comprehension.’
Meanwhile, Federer wants to see Messi on the field for a few more days. Federer likes his game. Just as Maradona and Batistuta inspired him, Federer believes Messi can inspire the next generation.
“Growing up, Maradona and Gabriel Batistuta were my favorite players,” Federer wrote. I had the good fortune to meet both of them. They inspired me. Now Messi can inspire the next generation. I want to see more of his great creativity and artistic play. Don’t bat too many eyelids when Messi plays on the field. Because, any incredible moment of this man can be missed. Thank you, Leo.’
Meanwhile, his PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe has also made it to Time’s 100 most influential people along with Lionel Messi.
