The FC Barcelona superstar has claimed five Ballons d'Or, and won every club trophy there is in football. Messi has scored 523 goals and assisted another 234 strikes in 600 appearances for his club, and is considered by most to be the best left-footed star in football right now.

Marca recently looked at 10 other left-footed players (in no particular order) who have been writing the headlines over the past few years and can be considered world-class,

Antoine Griezmann is another left-footer who has impressed a lot recently. The 26-year-old has scored 86 goals and assisted another 28 strikes since joining Atletico Madrid, and was named the Best Player and Top Goalscorer at the 2016 UEFA European Championship.

Messi's international teammate Paulo Dybala is seen as the natural heir to the Albiceleste's all-time record scorer and has starred at Juventus this season.

Gareth Bale is one of two Los Blancos stars to make the list. His talent and brilliant left foot are unquestionable, but his injury record has somewhat stalled his rise to the top. Marco Asensio is the other Real star in the ranking, with the youngster having impressed since breaking into Zinedine Zidane's first team last season.
