Barcelona star Lionel Messi is often credited as being both the best footballer of his generation and also the greatest to have ever played the game.
And that may be a statement which is quickly becoming inarguable, as the 28-year-old’s achievements were brilliantly immortalised by an Argentinian train station this week.
Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo may have his own museum, but would there be a better feeling than hopping on a train and seeing your greatest achievements surround you in murals, paintings and sculptures?
We think not!
Yes, the local council in Buenes Aires, 300 km north-west of Rosario where Messi was born, decided they would renovate the José Hernández station in homage to the “best player of the world.”
And it looks simply stunning.
One special feature includes an innovative sculpture by Leandro Sívori, which changes and depicts a different scene from Messi’s life and playing career depending on your viewpoint.
Every part of the station is Messi-themed, from the billboards which run along the side of the track, to an exhibition of footballs “filled with art.”
Missing your train has never been so enjoyable!
