    If there ever is, I hope that he will wear the blaugrana.

    I actually think the world will not see a player like Messi for the next 5 decades, maybe the whole century.

    Eventually there will be. But when? Probably won't see for a long time.

    The thing with Messi is he has all the attributes combined of all the top players. Scoring, passing, playmaying, dribbling, creativity, defending... Usually the great players master at one or 2 things (Ronaldo with scoring, Hazard with dribbling and creativity, Ribery/Robbon passing/dribbling...). But Messi has it all.

    It's going to be a long time until we see someone like Messi again. He's not just a one in a generation type of player; he's one in a century type of player.

    I don't think that is guaranteed. To your point, Messi excels in pretty much everything. There will be top scorers, dribblers, playmakers, but mold all the attributes into one? Hardly possible again.

    For all the talk about complete players, there's hardly been anyone as complete as Messi for a very, very long time, if not ever.

    And he has scored a CL winner with a header so there's that too

    Oh man; all this talk about it not being another messi for a century makes me wanna cry when I think he's already 28 now.. can we go 10 years back ?

    If we're truly speaking about "another messi", I don't think we will in our lifetime at least, combine all those attributes you talked about, and add to it humility on the field and not diving, it's simply impossible, look at Pelé, Maradonna, Cristiano, Neymar etc .. all good and all, but from mildly to unbearably arrogants / full of themselves, Messi is unprecedented and unrepeatable, as simple as that.

    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.
