Lionel Messi takes on his dog in an incredible ‘keep up’ challenge, leaves it helpless
When we talk of football, the first name that pops up in our mind is Lionel Messi. The 31-year-old Argentine is arguably the greatest to have ever stepped onto a football field and his skills are just unparalleled. With a god-like dribbling speed and the ability to fool several defenders at one go, Lionel Messi makes us stare at the TV screen like no other human being on the planet.
Now it looks like Messi is tired of taking on the defenders on the football pitch and has found himself a new competitor. In a video that is doing the rounds on social media, the little genius can be seen going merciless on his own dog.
We all are aware of the Messi’s magical talent with the ball but not many know about his love for pets. His Instagram profile has several pictures of his pet.
Now coming back to the video, Messi is seen performing keep-ups with his dog trying to take the ball away from his feet. Now that is something many high profile defenders have often failed to do and the dog just got added to the list of the poor souls. We get a glimpse of Messi’s incredible talent once again and his dog has no clue whatsoever what is going on with him.
However, the video also portrays the beautiful bond the greatest of all time shares with his dog. The clip was uploaded by none other than Messi’s wife Antonella Roccuzzo.
Bow down to the king, all of you! Bow down to the king.
