FC Barcelona – La Liga City midfielder is a big fan
Ilkay Gundogan has admitted that Barcelona’s Leo Messi is his favourite player in the world.
The Manchester City maestro stated that there were plenty of good candidates but that Messi topped the lot.
“It is a difficult question. I would probably say that Leo Messi is my favourite footballer of all time because it is a joy to watch him and, fortunately, I can continue to watch him,” he told Sky Sports Mexico.
“Of course there are other players that I remember like Zinedine Zidane or Ronaldinho.
“I have watched many stars but if I had to choose just one, it would probably be Messi.”
Gundogan is the in-form star of the Premier League at the moment, with the German midfielder claiming January’s player of the month award.
