There are several judges of whether a player can be considered one of the greats. Awards, statues, titles and accolades are some, but has any other player made it into the dictionary?
A Spanish dictionary has updated his version to include the word ‘Inmessionante’, which we are told has two meanings:
1. The perfect way to play football, an unlimited ability to self-improve.
2. Describes the best player of all time
Whilst such an act is both ridiculously sycophantic and attention-seeking from the publication, it does show just how far reaching Messi-mania really is.
