Quote of the Day: David Beckham on Messi

“He is the best in the world, simple as that. He is a player that when any kid watches him, wants to be him. They wanna watch everything he does; the way he conducts himself and the way he works hard for the team. He is not just a player – technically he is the best in the world – [but] he works hard for the team and that’s what makes him the person and the player that he is. You watch him and it’s like watching an eight or nine year old play. He just goes and enjoys himself. I think he goes into every game thinking that if this is my last game, this is how I’m going to play and every game he plays, he plays like that. He is a special player.”  

In an interview on ESPN show “Press Pass”, former Manchester United and Real Madrid player and current Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham is all praise for FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
