Lionel Messi is arguably one of the best players to have ever graced the world of football and has won a whopping six Ballon d'Or awards. He is even the favorite to win this year's Ballon D'or award which would make it his 7th.
Messi played for Barcelona for about 15 professional seasons before switching to PSG last summer after he could not be able to renew his contract with the La Liga giants.
During an interview, Lionel Messi was asked to name the toughest opponent he has ever faced in his career. Although Messi has faced very many famous and high-profile players like Sergio Ramos, Virgil Van Dijk, Giorgio Chiellini, and many others, Messi chose to name Spain right-back Maffeo as his toughest opponent.
Pablo Carmine Maffeo Becerra is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a right-back for RCD Mallorca on loan from German club VfB Stuttgart.
