It does some months fulfilled 12 years of the official debut of Leo Messi with the elastic Barcelona. And, curiously, it carried the dorsal 30. Therefore we want to remember today, in his 30 anniversary, that moment. The Argentinian were 17 years old... And it was the big promise of the quarry, although few would imagine that it would have turned into what is at present.

Messi went in in the second half to substitute to Deco. Although the Argentinian already had contested his first friendly party in 2003 in the inauguration of the stadium of the Port wine, could not debut officially in Spanish League until some months afterwards, of the hand of Frank Rijkaard, his big mentor. "Always I will be him appreciated by the confidence that deposited in me and how marked the timings so that it did not burn me", explained does years Leo.

To the few weeks would mark his first goal like Barcelona and, as it could not be of another form, with a work of art. After a sensacional assistance of Ronaldinho, Leo surpassed to the guardameta of the Albacete with a subtle vaselina and premièred like goleador -now already adds 507 goals of Barcelona-.

Only it would be two seasons with this dorsal, the 2004-2005 and the following. Already in the 06-07 would change to the '19', that will happen to the history like the dorsal that dressed Messi when it marked one of the best goals of all time: that eslalon of video game in front of the Getafe in the Glass of Rey. 

With the '10', everything is history

The arrival of Guardiola allowed to the Argentinian go up of status in the team. It went his fellow Ronnie and Pep gave him all the chevrons. It began the era of the '10'. The dynasty, the supremacy. And since only we have seen a version inigualable of a player without parangón neither ceiling.
