Turns out it’s not just us fans wowed by Lionel Messi on a daily basis.
The Argentine magician turned it on again in Barcelona’s latest La Liga match, scoring a superb winner in the Catalan’s 3-2 win over Villarreal.
Messi couldn’t steal all the headlines though as footballer-turned-commentator Ray Hudson gushed over the goal, claiming the three-time FIFA Ballon d’Or has“more moves than a grand chess master.”
Hudson has a history of colourful calling and has never been short on praise for Messi:“he wouldn’t give you the smell of his cologne when he’s got the goal in his sights”is just one gem from an entire highlight reel of admiration.
It’s little wonder the 27-year-old produces genius so regularly when his pre-match warm-up efforts are as good as the below goal shared by Barcelona.
