Former Barcelona defender Carles Puyol thinks for a few more years Catalan forward Lionel Messi can play at the top level.
“Messi is 33 now, he takes care of himself. Leo is motivated and full of desire. I think he will play at this level for another 3-4 years if he avoids serious injuries and continues to play with the same desire to improve and win,” said Puyol to Goal.
“Messi was very good when he was young. He was the kind of player who was given the ball, after which they show individual skill. He provided results and scored.”
“Messi was already very good then, but over the years he has become an even more outstanding player, the best in history.”
