LIONEL MESSI shouldn’t be able to do the things he does on a football pitch because of his size.


That’s the opinion of Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, who continues to be amazed by the 30-year-old’s achievements.

Messi completed yet another astonishing milestone in the 3-0 win over Chelsea last night as he notched up 100 career UEFA Champions League goals.

He scored twice as well as providing an assist for Ousmane Dembele to bag his first goal for the club.

Barcelona remain on course to record the treble this season having reached the Copa del Rey final as well as making the Champions League quarter-finals and they sit eight points clear at the top of La Liga.

Messi will undoubtedly play a huge role in whether Barcelona manage the feat.

But Ferdinand has claimed Messi, who measures at 5’6”, hasn’t got the archetypal body shape coaches would tend to look for when searching for a superstar.

“The guy’s a magician. The size of him, he shouldn’t be doing what he’s doing really,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport

“If you’re going to build a player out of a machine you’re not going to throw Messi out there.

“You’re going to throw someone who’s six-foot. He’s phenomenal and what happens when you play him is he doesn’t allow you to get near him.

“I played twice in two cup finals against him in the Champions League and I don’t think I got a finger on him because when you get near him he plays one touch and then all of a sudden he takes three touches and you can’t get near him.”
