Many sports legends, like LeBron James, Roger Federer and Gennady Golovkin, admire some top soccer players. But another one has appeared to express it: Tom Brady. The football GOAT took his time and talked about the players he likes, and is also compared with often.
The New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend is one of the best sportsmen of all times, and recognized someone else of that kind. Brady declared his love for Lionel Messi, who he follows a lot when he plays for FC Barcelona and Argentina, commenting he is a great player.
The 43-year-old quarterback told he watches soccer and has done it for a long time. He also expressed his admiration to Diego Maradona, but he could not see a lot of him given he was too young and his taste for soccer has not started at the point Diego was becoming a legend.
This year, Brady will face New England Patriots for the first time, the team he played for for 20 years. But in this ongoing season, Buccaneers have the chance of making it to Super Bowl LV, if they beat Saints tomorrow and then, the winner between Rams and Packers to get the NFC Championship and play the most important game of the season.
