Is the pressure getting to Lionel Messi?
Before last weekend’s match with Athletic Bilbao, arguably the world’s greatest ever footballer was facing the one of the biggest tests of his career following three successive defeats for the Catalans.
Out of the Champions League, having lost to Real Madrid in the Copa Del Rey final, and with their La Liga hopes hanging by a thread, Messi has now found him facing a barrage of abuse – sometimes literally – as many wonder whether the Argentine can inspire Barca back to their former glory days.
Ultimately Messi answered his critics on Sunday night scoring a late free-kick to complete a 2-1 comeback win over Bilbao, but LM10’s evening started badly as the superstar vomited in the tunnel.
