Since making his senior debut for Barcelona in 2004, Messi has indiscriminately tormented opposition defenders en route to becoming one of football's greatest players ever.

"He's an extraordinary player – the kind of player who makes a real difference. He is very intelligent when he has to keep hold of and protect the ball," Llenglet told AS.
