Fabio Capello appeared on 'Smart Football' on Fox Sports Italy recently and declared his three favourite players in the history of football while agreeing with Jorge Sampaoli when he said that there should be a Ballon d'Or for Messi and one for all the other players. 

"He can go so fast with the ball at his feet, his rivals can't dribble like he can with such calmness, they can's score goals and assist like him either."

The former Real Madrid continued to praise the player, "It's true that he is a world star, if you get a chance to go and see him you should because his presence is worth the entrance fee. Pele, Maradona and Messi: they are the three best players in the history of football. They make you get out of your seat and they you give them a standing ovation at the end of the game. Thank you, Messi, for everything you treat us with. Best of luck with your health, for us it is very important: we always want to see you on the field."
