You are such a Messitard, Manuel.
I can't say you are wrong though since the guy is very talented but imo
apart from Maradona there is a player who had more magic in his left foot than Messi and he had as much raw talent as him but sadly never fulfilled even 10% of that potential.
"Recoba was the greatest talent never blossomed that I have ever seen" - (Cit. J.Zanetti)
Zanetti is 100% spot on here.
Unlike Messi, Alvaro could do ANYTHING with his left foot at exceptional level (dribbling, shooting power/accuracy from long distance, ability to score form almost anywhere, free kicks, shotmaking, passing etc). He also had better techinque than Messi overall. For me he certainly had more magic in his left foot than Messi. Alvaro scored way more jaw dropping goals than Messi even though Messi scored 8765678 more goals than him.
He was a specialist at scoring stunning goals (rare kind of a player). The guy scored more than 3/4 goals from corner kicks for god's sake.
Anyway, we have different opinions sometimes and that's a good thing imo.
Recoba is my fav player when I was a kid by the way and he is still my fav player until the day he retires. He had the best left foot ever since Maradona imo because there is nothing he couldn't do with his left foot at exceptional level when he is playing at his best and his techinque was flawless. He was insanely talented. Certainly the biggest waste of talent I've ever seen in football. However his youtube videos are always pleasure to watch.
Plus his free kicks were out of this world.
