Lionel Messi may be churning out superhuman performances week in and week out, but Pope Francis is not a fan of the Barcelona legend being compared to God, as he explained in a recent interview.

The Pope, who is also a native of Argentina, was interviewed by Jordi Evole of La Sexta, says he is good but he is should not be compared to a God.

The following are some relevant excerpts from the interview:

Jordi Evole: Is it sacrilege to say that 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 worshiped. Those are expressions from people. “This is a God with the ball on the field” is a popular way for someone to express themselves.

Jordi Evole: But he plays well doesn’t he?

Pope Francis: Of course, he is very good, but he isn’t God.
