Video: Lionel Messi is Just as Amazing in Barcelona Training

Lionel Messi is pretty amazing to watch in games – but that isn’t the only time he’s doing ridiculous things with the ball.

Barcelona have been secretive with their training over the years, stemming back to Pep Guardiola’s reign at the club and his preference for closed door sessions while preparing for games.

But, as is the case with most teams these days, Barca are opening up their training to the club media cameras – and that makes for some entertaining viewing when you’ve got Messi and his teammates in action.

While Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele and Andres Iniesta are among those in sessions, Messi is the one to watch. And Barcelona’s YouTube channel caught some of his best stuff recently:

We’ve never really thought of how difficult it must be for some of his teammates having to defend against him on a regular basis.

Messi will next be in competitive action when they take on Eibar in La Liga on Saturday.
