Gary Lineker was left mind-blown by Lionel Messi’s skill after sharing a video of the Argentine embarrassing his former Barcelona team-mates in training.
A Blaugrana fan account posted a throwback clip of Messi breezing past his former team-mates to find the net multiple times and captioned it: ‘Messi looks as if he were in the schoolyard. Very easy.’
Former Barcelona striker and pundit Gary Lineker retweeted the video, posting a single mind-blown emoji.

Messi starred for Barcelona for 21 years before making an emotional departure from the Nou Camp to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer.
The 34-year-old has struggled in Ligue 1, netting just once in 12 appearances in the French top-flight.
But it is clear Lineker is still a fan of Messi, despite the forward’s woes in the French capital this season.
The pundit has long been an admirer of Messi and claimed that he played a different sport as he compared him to Maradona.
