Messi and his registers goleadores, something irrepetible

Leo Messi began his career pegadito to the band. His impact in the game had to arrive from here. His threat had to split from the extreme, and from here to the interior. With Guardiola arrived a variant, do play to the Argentinian of 'false nine'. An innovative concept that worked to perfection, because it allowed to the star show his smell goleador and attract a lot of defenders to leave space in the bands. 

The arrival of Luis Enrique, joined to the one of Luis Suárez, gave back to Messi to the band. The Uruguayan needs his space in the area, where smells the blood and is lethal. The evolution of the genius has done that in these last seasons have seen him go down increasingly to the centre of the field, to have freedom and field by in front to decide what do.

But it is so much his ambition that Messi follows beating all the possible registers. Surpassed the figure of 500 goals like Barcelona, the Argentinian has achieved his fourth Pichichi and his fourth Boot of Gold. In the last eight seasons has surpassed the barrier of the 30 goals in League in six occasions -remained in 26 the past year and in 27 in the 13/14-. 

Few goleadores more insaciables that Read. Few more resolutivos (anybody more has arrived to the 50 goals in a domestic competition). Any so magic. And the feeling no only is that has rope for while... But him leftover ambition. The Camp Nou will follow celebrating his goals in the next seasons.
