This is a no-brainer
Lionel Messi is the best player of this generation by a very large distance, and he's obviously the best winger (as well as the best striker).
Last season, Messi scored an impressive 47 goals, and this season he has already scored eight in eight matches and he hasn't even hit top form yet. The Argentinian genius is almost unstoppable, and his otherwordly performances have earned unprecedented plaudits for a 23-year-old, as few doubt that he has everything to become the best football player ever (or at least in the same league as Pelé and Maradona) once he retires.
There's currently no rival to Messi, who is truly a once-in-a-generation player and one of the most complete players ever (goal-scoring skills, play-making skills, on-pitch intelligence...). No player combines pace, skill and strength like Messi does. A strong header of the ball and an excellent reader of the game, he is hands- down the most complete player in world football.
Football fans will keep on enjoying Lionel Messi's football on his seemingly unstoppable path to greatness.
