Usain Bolt names three players better than Messi and ended the GOAT debate

Usain Bolt has once again sparked the never-ending greatest footballer of all time (GOAT) debate with his recent comments on the top three players in the sport’s history.

The GOAT conversation seems to persist without pause. Each day brings new perspectives that only intensify the ongoing debate, leaving opinions sharply divided.


In his latest contribution to the discussion, Bolt, renowned as the fastest human alive, notably omitted Lionel Messi from his list of the top three players of all time.

The legendary sprinter, who is the holder of numerous records in the 100-metre and 200-metre races, instead declared his allegiance to Cristiano Ronaldo.

During a quick-fire segment, Bolt faced a challenging query: to name his favourite footballer.

He answered, as cited by Essentially Sport: “I’m just going to keep it simple. I think Pele and [Diego]. My favourite footballer is Cristiano Ronaldo so those are my top three.”

When quipped about his decision not to include eight-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi, the former athlete reaffirmed his choice, stating, ‘Yeah, for sure. It’s Cristiano Ronaldo’.
