Football Fans Aren't Too Happy With Lionel Messi's Latest On-Field Act

Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players to ever grace a football field.

There's absolutely no denying that.

Is he the greatest to ever live? Well, that one is still up for debate.

But for people wishing to delve deeper into that divisive conversation regarding the 'greatest of all-time', they might want to check out this latest footage of the Argentinian icon.

Fans (mainly Cristiano Ronaldo super-fans) have slammed Messi for his defensive work (or lack of) during Barcelona's Champions League clash with Dynamo Kiev.

In the damning footage which spread like wildfire on social media, Barca's all-time leading goalscorer can be seen casually strolling back into position instead of closing down his man.

Messi literally lets the Kiev player in possession dribble straight past him.

And while this all unfolded in Kiev's own half, not doing your defensive duties for the team is one sure way of pissing off the supporters.

Messi didn't even break stride.

And despite actually getting on the scoresheet against Kiev, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner quickly became public enemy number one following his side's 2-1 victory.

And unsurprisingly, football fans on Twitter were quick to point out the 33-year-old's sheer laziness.
