Pope Francis says ‘Lionel Messi is very good, but he is not God’

‘Lionel Messi is very good, but he isn’t God’ – Pope Francis cautions Messi fans.

Catholic Pontiff, Pope Francis has called for calm in comparing his Argentine compatriot, Lionel Messi, to God because of his talent football.

The clergyman made the statement while being interviewed by Jordi Evole in La Sexta and the conversation is detailed below.

Jordi Evole: You know when both. Is it sacrilege to say the Messi is God?

Pope Francis: In theory, it is sacrilege. You can’t say it and I don’t believe it. Do you believe it?

Jordi Evole: I do.

Pope Francis: I don’t [laughs]. People can say he is God, just as they may say ‘I adore you’ but only God can be worshipped. Those are expressions from people. ‘This is a God with the on the field’ is a way for someone to express themselves.

Jordi Evole: But he plays well doesn’t he?

Pope Francis: Of course, he is very good, but he isn’t God.
