But the big question is, What more should Messi do before he is considered the undisputed greatest player of all time?
Messi's arch-rival, Cristiano Ronaldo has recently broken the world record for men's football. The Manchester United star scored his 111th in Portugals 1-0 win over Ireland and he showed a certificate backing his achievement.

However, that's not the only record being held by Ronaldo, he also holds the record of the highest goal-scoring player in the history of the champions league.
Going forward, Messi holds some personal records of his own like most Ballon D'or winners, most FIFA player of the year award, he still needs to match some of Ronaldo's records, especially the world record in men's football.
Conclusively, This generation is lucky to watch these two players, but Messi is not yet the greatest player of all time but he could be considered as one of the best to have played the game.
