When you have something incredible in your life, it’s nice to take a look back and enjoy that thing at its initial, pure first stages. For Barcelona and Lionel Messi fans, those initial first stages were during Messi’s time at Barcelona’s academy, La Masia.
So in celebration of Messi’s 13 year anniversary, let’s take a few moments to watch some of his top skills in a video put together by Barcelona themselves.
The video was comprised of some of the best that Messi has to offer on the football pitch. Dribbling through defenses like a hot knife through butter, scoring beautiful chipped goals over the keeper’s head, and amazing hair.
Lionel Messi is a treat to the footballing world. This video is a great reminder of the simplistic nature that football can have at young ages, and all that can develop from when a young Argentine comes to Barcelona’s youth academy.
