The best player of the world does not need to be the one who more quilómetros runs by party. Messi, perhaps the more intelligent and creative footballer of the history, does not do movements in vain. All have sense and are thought -in thousandth of second- for desequilibrar

Never before a player had been so powerful with so few movements. The newspaper "Marks" has published an official statistics of the quilómetros visited by each one of the players of this edition of the UEFA Champions League, and surprises to see that Leo Messi is the second footballer that less runs by party, doing the calculation of minutes in comparison with which have played other players of the other teams that compose at present the eighth of final of the prestigious European competition. If Koke Resurrection (12.176 metres by party) and Flamini (12.388 metres by party) are the two players that more run along the meetings, Leo Messi is one of the last qualifiers in this statistics, with 7.906 metres visited by appointment.

The quantity of metres visited by Leo Messi in the parties of Champions League is the second lower only above the one of Naldo (7.357 metres by meeting), head office of the Wolfsburgo, and besides is surprisingly inferior to the metres that visited Leo Messi in the seasons 2013-14 (8.414) and 2014-15 (8.403) by commitment, what leaves clear the evolution of the Argentinian star in this appearance to measure that go happening theyears . Leo Messi, possibly the player of football more intelligent -in the sportive plane- of all time, does not need to run more than the other to be equally lethal, condemning with his magic to the rival teams like sucediera this past Tuesday in the Emirates Stadium against the Arsenal of Arsène Wenger.

"The Flea" gives an extreme importance to each one of his movements, that never are in vain and are wisely thought in spite of generating and put in practice in hardly tenth of second. Messi moves like fish in the water on the terrains of game, and with the effervescence goleadora of Luis Suárez and Neymar Jr is assimilating to perfection an increasingly retarded position, more than mediapunta that of extreme or forward, having from the three chambers of field of a global and peripheral vision of the played that it allows him give assistances, make walls, shoot from out of the area and, in definite, organise all the game of attack of the Barça.

Leo Messi does not need to visit the 9.170 metres by party that runs Cristiano Ronaldo to triumph and win the praises of the global fans. To the purest style of Roger Federer -doing a comparative with the tennis-, could say that Messi controls the game and no the other way around, like sucede in the big majority of the footballers. The genius andante of the Barça dosifica efforts to be fresco during all the party and along all the season, being able to of this form take advantage of to the maximum each inch of energy. And this, at the end, could be the key so that his career and world-wide command lengthen during a lot of campaigns more. Because Messi is Messi. And only there is one.
