Lionel Messi put a hault to training this week, as the Barcelona superstar wanted to congratulate Ousmane Dembélé on a terrific piece of skill.
Having fought back on Tuesday night to earn a 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the Barca players enjoyed a light training session this week, with particular focus being placed on their trademark ‘rondo’ drill.
And while the session allowed players like Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets to show off their fancy footwork, it was Dembélé who really impressed.
In fact, a video posted by Barcelona’s official YouTube channel, showed that the Frenchman even earned a round of applause from Messi after he nutmegged defender Jordi Alba:
When Messi lets you know that you’ve done well, you know it must be true.
The Argentina international will of course be happy with his own performance this week, after he notched his first ever goal against Chelsea to secure a draw in the first-leg of their Champions League tie.
