Leo Messi has returned to Barcelona season in better shape than ever, according to MARCA.
To be fair, this undercover report from MARCA is hardly necessary; the pictures speak for themselves: the four time Ballon D’Or looks like he hardly took a break, and looks right on point in terms of shape and weight.
Which is quite novel for Messi; traditionally, the Argentine has enjoyed his summer holidays a little too much, and has been known to return for pre-season carrying a little extra timber.
But that all appears to be a thing of the past now, as Messi really appears to have gotten his diet and lifestyle under control, and looks to have put his gluttonous indulgences behind him.
According to Marca, Barcelona’s coaching staff have observed that Messi is ‘like a bull’ and looks primed to start in the Spanish Super Cup next week.
