This past week Messi celebrated 10 years since he wore the Barcelona kit for the first time with the senior squad. To celebrate that landmark I decided to put together the 10 quotes that best describe Messi.
In the end it is hard to describe what he does on the field, but these 10 quotes do a very good job at getting close to it.
