“Even if I know, I can’t stop it.”
I am talking about football god Lionel Messi (35, Paris Saint-Germain).
Messi, who held the first World Cup in his arms at the World Cup in Qatar last December, is flying after returning to PSG, his team.
He scored 10 goals and 10 assists in 안전놀이터18 league matches this season, and scored 4 goals and 4 assists in 5 Champions League matches. PSG led the league and advanced to the round of 16 in the Champions League.
Even in his mid-thirties, he is showing off his rust-free skills. Statistics (whoscored.com) proves it. Messi ranks first in dribbling success in Europe’s top 5 leagues with 59 dribbles.
Real Madrid Vinicius Junior is second behind Messi with 55 times. Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremy Frimpong has 40 and AC Milan striker Rafael Leon has 35. Arsenal striker Gabriel Martinelli and Crystal Palace midfielder Everech Eze followed with 33 each.
Vinicius is speeding up his pursuit of Messi. However, Vinicius has 158 dribble attempts (55 successful), more than Messi with 110 (59 successful). Messi leads in success rate. Of course, there is a difference in weight between La Liga and League 1, but it is true that Messi’s dribbling is excellent.
According to Britain’s Give Me Sports, Messi does not use flashy techniques such as overstepping and avoids the opponent’s defender with only his left foot. He can’t block his dribble. Even at the age of 35 he has not declined at all. With this style he fooled his opponents for over a decade. As the teachers who coached Messi have mentioned, ‘Messi = tactics’.
Messi, who gained momentum by winning the World Cup, is also embroidering the French stage. Now, the next gaze is on PSG’s long-cherished Champions League title.
