While many consider FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to be the best footballer ever seen, a former Real Madrid manager has refuted this, and explained why he feels the Argentine cannot be called the greatest of all time.
Messi's name is often mentioned among those thought of as the game's best players ever, including the likes of Pele and Diego Maradona.
However, Jose Antonio Camacho, an ex-Los Blancos boss, feels the Blaugrana forward can only be called the greatest footballer of all time if he wins a Fifa World Cup.
"He is a very good player, but you can't be the best in the world – let alone in history – if you are an Argentinian and you have not won a World Cup," Camacho said in an interview with El Mundo.
"There are countries with lesser tradition when it comes to world football – where winning the World Cup is not as significant an achievement as in other countries – but Argentina is a dominant force.
"No, without a World Cup, Messi can't be the best.
"A World Cup is the best you can aspire to and Argentinians will always demand it."
Messi made it to the final of the 2014 World Cup, but Argentina lost in extra-time to Germany.
