Trent Alexander-Arnold cites his all-time favorite athlete
Trent Alexander-Arnold of England chose Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina, as the “best player ever.”
Alexander-Arnold acknowledged that Messi, 35, is a pleasure to watch play the round leather game.
Argentina's performance at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup has been centered on Messi.
In four games for Argentina, the Paris Saint-Germain forward has three goals and one assist.
The former captain of Barcelona is making what could be his final appearance in the World Cup and wants to leave with the greatest honor.
When asked about Messi, Alexander-Arnold responded, “Nothing needs to be said on that,” according to All About Argentina and talkSPORT. The greatest athlete ever. Even as he ages, watching him is still magical.
“I don't think I'll ever see anything like him again. I'm just trying to take it all in while I'm watching him.
In Argentina's 2-1 round-of-16 victory over Australia, Messi recently participated in his 1000th game of his career.
