Snubbed by journalists for the Ballon d’Or award this year, it was a relatively impressive year for Lionel Messi.
Leo was brilliant for both Barcelona and the Argentine national team. His year wasn’t one without disappointment as he missed out of the Copa America with Argentina and the UCL with Barca.
It saw him retire from the national team, but returned to light the beacon of hope for their World Cup campaign.
Barcelona lifted the league and cup double and opened their season with the Spanish Super Cup.
The 29-year-old is considered as one of the most deadly finishers in the modern game. Goalkeepers have been left embarrassed while the fans hunger for more.
He hammered in a whooping 59 goals for both Barcelona and Argentina.
Thanks to a Youtube user, we can now pull a cushion, sit back, relax and enjoy his pure magic.
