The former Paraguay and Velez Sarsfeld goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert picked the players he thought are the best ever and top of the list was Lionel Messi.
"The best by far is Messi. Second is Maradona, third is Pele and Di Stefano. Fifth is Cruyff, Zidane or Pele," he told Fox Sports Radio in an interview.
These claims followed an earlier statement in which he praised the Barcelona No 10, speaking about how Messi determined games for both Argentina and his club.
