Argentina superstar, Lionel Messi, delivered a five start performance during his side’s Catalan derby with Espanyol in the domestic league yesterday. The five times Ballon D’or winner opened the scoring with a curling free kick in the 17th minute before going on to complete the brace in the 65th minute from another sumptuous free kick.
The highly talented striker has been considered by many as one of the greatest human being to have played the round leather game but Brazilian football legend, Pele, thinks otherwise.
The Brazilian dropped a bombshell last week when he said that Messi is not a complete footballer and can not be considered as a great footballer because he only plays with his left foot.
The diminutive forward’s display yesterday has got fans trolling the Brazilian legend by pointing out to the fact that the five times Ballon D’or winner just scored a brae of free kicks.
What they are saying:
Messi's performance tonight is a big fuck you to Pele.

Messi's left leg > Pele's career.
