Former Real Madrid icon Fernando Hierro is happy to have not coincided with Leo Messi during his playing career.
The Spaniard feels that the Argentine has been unstoppable throughout his career and is glad to have avoided him on the pitch.
“I consider myself privileged not to have played against Leo Messi,” he told Radio Continental.
“Maradona was my idol during my childhood.
“What Messi has been doing in the last 15 years is something out of the ordinary,” Hierro added.
