Messi Honored With Statue Next To Maradona, Pele

Lionel Messi continues to be showered with praise as a World Cup and multiple Ballon d’Or winner, with a new statue of him unveiled by CONMEBOL.

The Argentina international, who inspired his country to global glory at Qatar 2022, is being immortalised in the official museum of South American football alongside fellow legends Diego Maradona and Pele.

Messi has also been presented with replicas of the World Cup and Finalissima trophies that he has helped the Albiceleste to collect over the course of a memorable 12 months.

The 35-year-old, who recently netted his 800th goal, has found the target on 99 occasions for Argentina and could become a centurion when facing Curacao on Tuesday.
