Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole has insisted that Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Lionel Messi remains the greatest football player in history.

Both Messi and Ronaldo scored vital goals for their respective clubs in the Champions League to hand them the assurance of making it out of the group stages of the competition.

There has been an unending debate over who is the better player between the two greatest players of all time.

Messi’s goal for Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday was his first since joining from Barcelona in the summer, curling an effort from outside the box into the top corner in PSG’s 2-0 win over Man City.

And Cole, a former England international, had no doubts that the Argentina captain would succeed with PSG, adding that his latest piece of brilliance only confirmed that the Argentine is the greatest player on the planet, ahead of Ronaldo.

“It was only a matter of time, it was a beautiful goal,” Cole told BT Sport of Messi’s strike. He was going to turn up in a big game against Man City.

“You still get some people saying, ‘would he be able to do it in England?’ Well he’s scored goals against the best team in England at the moment.

“What he does so well…to do that at that pace, he’s being leant on, and to get a nice connection and reverse it into the top corner is unbelievable

“For me he’s still the greatest, still the best in the world, I’m just so excited to see what he can do with this PSG team.”
