After being discovered by Spanish club FC Barcelona, Messi had his treatment and, at the age of 14, began competing for the club’s youth teams.Barcelona decided not to retain players like Ronaldinho and Deco in 2008 due to Messi’s increasing influence there.

It had to be seen to be believed when La Pulga (The Flea) scored against Getafe in the 2007 Copa del Rey. He took out from the midway line, outrunning every opponent in his path before circling the goalkeeper. The score only served to fuel further similarities between Maradona and that legendary goal he scored against England in the 1986 World Cup.
Alongside Barcelona, Messi has won seven league championships. In the 2008–09 season, after receiving Ronaldinho’s number 10 jersey, he scored 38 goals across all competitions, shining in the brilliant frontline trio with Samuel Eto’o and Thierry Henry. Barca won the Liga, Champions League, and Copa del Rey trifecta thanks to the telepathic connection that Messi developed with Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez. He now holds the record for most goals scored by a player for Barcelona, scoring an astounding 73 in the 2011–12 campaign.
