Former Argentina star, Pablo Aimar praised his countryman Lionel Messi , saying his achievements and skills put him alongside the sport legends like Micheal Jordan and Roger Federer.
Lionel Messi is too an admirer of Aimar and has confessed at a variety of occasions that ‘El Payaso’ is his ideal on the field, Aimar has now returned the favor with some wonderful words for the Barcelona’s striker.
“Imagine if tomorrow you rent out a pitch and Messi comes along. As soon as he grabs the ball you know he’s going to score on you or do something great,” Aimar told Goal.
He further added, “He will make you better as well whoever plays with him. He does not play alone.
Former Valenica star stated, “I think that he thinks and acts at the same moment. Or maybe he even acts before he thinks. But the amazing thing is that, be it a final, semi-final or whatever, he plays knowing that he can decide the game.”
Aimar uttered few words to hail the greatness of Micheal Jordan and Roger Federer as well, “I think that is what Jordan used to do, he used to say he had missed more shots than he had made, but he shot all the same in order to win. Federer is another monster. They play a match and go for the lines knowing they could miss, but knowing as well as if they win it is for them, and if they lose too.
He also said Messi is like the basketball legend Micheal Jordan.
