Compilation Of Lionel Messi's Inexplicable Dribbling Is Just Breathtaking
There aren't any better sights in football than Lionel Messi destroying multiple players at full pelt and some wonderful soul has kindly put together a compilation of his many inexplicable dribbles.
Messi very rarely uses unnecessary skill but together his sublime footwork, balance and ability to change direction makes him the best dribbler on the planet.
Even with three or four players hunting him down, Messi's close control is so next level that he can easily jink his way out of the most congested spaces and we see that in abundance throughout the following two minute clip from @FutbolStan.

It's almost impossible to stop the Argentine when he picks up the ball and bares down on goal, that the only way you can get thwart Messi is to foul him. And even then, he has no problem sherving the most aggressive of challenges and leaving defenders on their arses.
In May, another Messi fanboy made a compilation of all the humiliations that Messi dished out in 2018/19.

Twitter user @LioMessi10EN put together a two minute video of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner ust absolutely rinsing any player that dared to try and take the ball off him, with Dani Carvajal, Antoine Griezmann, Fabinho, Luka Modric, Gareth Bale, Koke, Heung-Min Son and just some of the many victims.
Another favourite instance of Messi mugging someone off was when he genuinely made Griezmann reassess his life choices in just a matter of seconds as "Hello Darkness my old friend" plays inside his head.

The Frenchman will now be lining up in the same team as Messi after completing a £107 million move to Barcelona and is looking forward to playing alongside him instead of on opposite sides.
"I'm excited to see what he's like day to day, what he's like in training," the Frenchman told MARCA.
"[I want to] catch him doing things in training that I will try to repeat or do in my own way and get to know him on and off the pitch. I can't wait for him to arrive."
