Lionel Messi is not only considered to be the best footballer on the planet by many, but he’s also regarded as a model professional, with a calm manner and a likeable character. However, during Barcelona’s friendly against Roma on Wednesday, the little magician revealed his aggressive side.
With Roma defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa attempting to body check him in the build up to a flowing Barcelona move, Messi wasn’t having it, squared up to French stopper and launched a cheeky little headbutt. He got away with it, too. It’s only a friendly, Leo!
