To date, he is the only player to have received the Ballon Dior honor six times. Despite Lionel Messi's on-field'magic,' he does have some flaws.


Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal manager, considers Lionel Messi to be the best player of the contemporary era. Wenger, on the other hand, claims that Lionel Messi is not faultless and does have some flaws. Wenger believes Lionel Messi has a number of weaknesses that make him a mediocre player. Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger believes Lionel Messi's two biggest flaws are his lack of aerial ability and defensive prowess.



According to Wenger, Messi had the potential to be the ideal player. If only he had the aerial ability of Cristiano Ronaldo and the ability to properly defend as well. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger explained to SBNATION the following:


"There's no such thing as a flawless player; everyone has some shortcomings." For example, despite the fact that some believe that Messi is the most perfect player ever because he can both create opportunities for teammates and score goals on his own, he does have flaws.

"If you look at his game closely, he's not as excellent as Cristiano Ronaldo in the air. "He also has defensive issues."
