Former Barcelona defender Carles Puyol predicts that Lionel Messi, the Catalan forward, will be able to play for a few more years at the top level.
“He takes care of himself now that Messi is 33. Leo is driven and full of motivation. I assume that if he avoids serious injuries and continues to play with the same desire to develop and win, he will play at this level for another 3-4 years.
Messi was successful in his youth. He was one of those players who was given the ball, after which they showed individual talent. He produced the result and scored.
Messi was really good already, but he’s become an even more excellent player over the years, the best in history,” Puyol said.
