Lionel Messi : The Modern Day Messiah

Posted: April 14, 2010 in General Talk

Lets face it, Lionel Messi is possibly the worlds greatest footballer out there.

With the likes of Ronaldo, Torres and even our very own Steven Gerrard, Messi at the young age of 22 has achieved more than anyone could ever imagine.  Last season alone he scored an unbelievable 38 goals, 14 goals in 26 league games including a hat-trick in the El Clásico, his goals also assisting Barcelona to a La Liga victory campaign, as well as the Spanish Domestic cup (Copa Del Ray) and lets not forget the emphatic win against Manchester United in the European Champions League Final.  Barcelona completing the treble, the only spanish side EVER to have done this.

Yes Messi has done so much already in his very tiny career.  Appearing for Barcelona 137 times and scoring 81 goals for the club, he is certainly on his way to making history (if he hasn’t done so already!) What else is left for the 22 year old argentinian?  World cup Dominance? back to back world player of the year?  Endless golden boot awards?  He already has an Olympic gold under his belt, as well as two european cup victories, two La Liga victories, and also breaking the la ligas’ record of being the youngest player to play and score in the league!

Lets hope Lionel Messis’ story does not end in tradgedy as we have seen in the past with such great sporting figures!
