I have written in the past about Lionel Messi. Like any other football fan, analyst or pundit, I am short of words to adequately describe this ‘littlel genius that God bestowed on us in the football community.
Blessed with unbelievable close control, Messi has the ability to dribble his way out of any midfield. He has mesmerized the best holding midfielders in the world and left many a defender grasping at thin air in the wake of his blistering run at goals all over Europe. His vision in creating something out of nothing can only be matched by another great, Diego Amando Maradona.
I could imagine that the top guns at AC Milan would be wondering what blunder they committed in allowing their former midfield genius leave for a big rival like Juventus at the beginning of the just concluded European football season. Having gone on to win the Scudetto in style at the Turin based club, Andrea Pirlo joined the league of the ‘immortals’ in not losing a match throughout the Serie A season. He also played some of the best matches of his career during the season as he marshaled excellently the midfield and created tons of chances and assists for his teammates to ensure that remarkable achievement.
