Lineker: Messi makes me realise how shit I was!

Former Barcelona and English international turned pundit, Gary Lineker is never one to hide his opinion, but during Barcelona’s 2-1 Champions League win over Manchester City, the 53-year-old was humbled by the accomplishments of four-time Ballon d’Or winning forward, Leo Messi.


In a few brief statements on twitter during the match, Lineker was very self-critical as he judged his own talents to the of Messi.

“Messi’s feet are ridiculous!

“Messi makes me realise how shit I was!”

Then Lineker came to the realisation that he was never at the level of Leo Messi,

“Feel shittier by the minute. #Messi

Lineker, on our part doesn’t deserve to be so self-critical after scoring 42 goals in his three-year, 103 game appearance career with the Blaugrana.
