Samuel Eto’o has named his former Barcelona teammate, Lionel Messi as the greatest ever to play the game.
The Argentina talisman was named to the FifPro XI squad, but missed out on the top three.
Nevertheless, Eto’o believes the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is the best to ever play the game.
Regardless, Eto’o – who played alongside Messi at Barca from 2004-09 – said the Argentina star was the greatest of all-time.
“Leo, for us, will always be the best player in the world ever,” he said.
“The human beings have to choose and they chose those three players, who have done well this year too.
“But for people like me and others, it doesn’t change the fact that Leo is the best player in the world ever.”
