Pope Francis speaks on the possibility of Lionel Messi being God

Pope Francis has stated that compatriot’s and Barcelona star Lionel Messi is not God.

He made this known in reaction to reports that some quarters worship the Argentine international.

According to Pope Francis, he enjoys watching Messi play, but worshiping a fellow man is wrong because only God deserves to be worshipped.

Jordi Evole: You know when both. Is it sacrilege to say the Messi is God?

Pope Francis: In theory, it is sacrilege. You can’t say it and I don’t believe it. Do you believe it?

Jordi Evole: I do.

Pope Francis: I don’t [laughs]. People can say he is God, just as they may say ‘I adore you’ but only God can be worshipped. Those are expressions from people. ‘This is a God with the ball on the field’ is a popular way for someone to express themselves.
