BARCELONA FANS ATTACK LIONEL MESSI FOR PENALTY MISS AGAINST VALLADOLID

Barcelona fans seem unsatisfied with Lionel Messi over the weekend despite scoring the only goal that helped them beat Real Vallodolid in one of the La Liga matches.

The Argentine failed to double his side’s lead in the 85th minute after shooting their second penalty kick of the match off target.

Though, the Catalans have opened a seven point gap over second-placed over Atletico Madrid, the club’s supporters faulted Messi’s approach to the game.

The 31-year-old has scored 30 goals in 29 appearances for the Catalans in all competitions this campaign.

Not too long ago, he reached a milestone after becoming the first player to score 400 La Liga goals in the history of the competition.

Daily Mail reports that some of the fans picked out where Ousmane Dembele bursts into the Valladolid half, but Messi failed to connect with the Frenchman after threading a pass to him.

The Twitter user is adamant that the 31-year-old has misjudged the situation terribly, forgetting that even Usain Bolt might have issues sprinting into the space.

We gotta talk about Messi. Here‘s a scene where he has to do better, his off the ball movement at the counter attack isn‘t good enough.”

The fan also gave the scene the full Neville and Carragher treatment, crosses and arrows – the works really – to depict how the attack should have gone, if only Messi knew his onions.

Continentour.com.ng recalls that ex-Barcelona striker Sonny Anderson fears the Spanish club will find it difficult to replace Argentine forward Lionel Messi when he finally hangs his boots.

The 31-year-old has netted 22 goals and 10 assists in 22 La Liga appearances this campaign while his tally for the season stands at 30 goals in 29 matches in all competitions.

Anderson, who spent just two season at Camp Nou arrived at the club in 1997 and scored 16 topflight goals in 47 matches.
