FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is already considered the greatest in the world by many, but one star believes he would still hold that status even if he had just one leg.

10 Of The Best Players To Never Win A League Title

Atletico Madrid will host the Catalan giants at the Wanda Metropolitano for a LaLiga fixture on Saturday, a clash Rojiblancos forward Vitolo is looking forward to.

Speaking ahead of the fixture, the 29-year-old warned his colleagues of the threat Messi could pose, claiming the Argentine would still be the best on the planet even with one leg.

"We are excited, it's beautiful for the fans to experience a game like this," Vitolo said, according to Marca.

"You could take one of Messi's legs away and he would still be the best.

"Even if he's not 100% fit, he can win the game in an instant."
