“I was such a good player on the ball [better] than even Lionel Messi,. “I could do many things with the ball that he cannot do now. Nobody should compare Messi to me at all,’’ Mohammed Polo told Gideon Okyere Anim(Gatusso) on All Sports on Accra-based Kingdom FM107.7

“We tend to hype footballers too much nowadays and I can tell you if we had got this kind of hype during our time then Messi would have been nowhere near me.”

Polo was also a former member of the senior national team the Black Stars that won the 1978 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hosted by Ghana.
