Messi ‘best in history’ with or without Argentina trophy, says Scaloni

A man hoping to help the six-time Ballon d’Or end his international barren run at the Copa America says a lofty standing is already secured
Lionel Messi will go down as “the best footballer in history”, with or without senior international honours, says Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni.

One of the most decorated players of all-time boasts an enviable collection of accolades from his time at Barcelona, but an Olympic gold medal and U20 World Cup glory are all he has to show for many years of loyal service with his country.

That could be about to change at this summer’s Copa America, with a final date booked against old adversaries and defending champions Brazil, but Scaloni says Messi’s standing at the very top of the game is already secure.
