German international Thomas Muller named his choice of the greatest footballer of all time.

The Greatest of All Time, popularly known as the G.O.A.T, is one of the most fiercely debated in football. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two names that commonly come up when talking about the best footballer of all time.

Many believe that Messi probably settled the debate once and for all when he led Argentina to triumph at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar last year. The German representative Thomas Muller has now made a similar statement. When asked to pick his G.O.A.T, the Bayern Munich striker was named Messi.

“Who is the greatest of all time? The GOAT for me is Messi because he makes people say ‘I go to the stadium for his elegance’ and at the same time he is very efficient in scoring goals and achieving records and titles. “Cristiano is also a strong candidate in two categories, which are statistics and titles, but Messi is just more subtle and elegant,” Muller told DAZN.

Thomas Muller recently praised Lionel Messi for scoring a stunning goal against Nashville SC in the League Cup final. Reacting to the video of Messi’s opening goal of the game, the 33-year-old came up with three clapping emojis on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter).

However, Muller issued a somewhat different opinion at the beginning of this year in March. The German said former Real Madrid talisman Ronaldo was giving them a huge problem after a sly Champions League dig at Messi. “It always goes well against Messi at all levels in terms of results.

At club level, Cristiano Ronaldo was our problem when he was at Real Madrid. But I have the most respect for Messi’s World Cup performance. Messi’s individual performance at the World Cup was amazing. He carried the whole team. It’s not that easy to play in a team like PSG. It’s hard to get a really good team balance,” said Muller.

Thomas Muller’s comments came after his team Bayern Munich knocked out Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), featuring Lioneel Messi, from last season’s Champions League. During his time at Barcelona, ​​Messi had to face an infamous 8-2 defeat at the hands of the Bavarian giants in 2020.

After completing an impressive spell on the European circuit, Messi completed his move to American side Inter Miami this summer. The Argentine led the Herons to their first ever League Cup victory earlier this month. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner for Major League Soccer (MLS) has scored 10 goals in eight games so far.

In his last appearance, Messi provided two assists against FC Cincinnati in the Open Cup semifinals. Inter Miami prevailed over their opponents 5-4 in the penalty shootout and reached the final stage.
