Is this the reason behind Lionel Messi's spectacular form? The Argentine even trained on his off day, working for a couple of hours in the gym.
Messi, who has started 2015 in sublime form for FC Barcelona, reportedly spent the day in the club’s gymnasium and is determined to stay in the best possible shape to continue his goal-scoring run.
Although he wasn’t obliged to, the Argentine trained and perhaps it shows the commitment the 27-year-old has to the Spanish giants and their cause.
Barcelona are currently within one point of rivals Real Madrid at the top of La Liga and Messi’s form along with Neymar’s, has been key in their title campaign.
Messi’s contribution to the team’s goals has been incredible, with the Argentine scoring 26 and assisting 16 in just 23 La Liga games.
