Thiago: New Messi emerges at Barcelona

first_img Loading… At 32-years-old Lionel Messi isn’t showing many signs of his brilliance coming to an end but the Barca legend is closer to the end of his career than the beginning at it’ll be a sad day for football when he does hang up his boots. With people always desperate to find the ‘next Messi’ they may not have to look too far with the Argentine’s eldest son Thiago, who is seven, showing he’s got his dad’s skills. A video of his run and composed finish has gone viral: He didn’t have to get past anyone like his dad often does but Thiago still showed excellent touch and brilliant pace and composure to score the goal. Very much unlike his dad, the youngster finished the goal with his right foot, choosing to cut across the ball rather than strike it with the left foot. Perhaps Lionel can work with him in the back garden to use his left foot more often, then he’ll have one over on his dad for sure.Not only does the goal suggest that Messi’s legacy could be continued through his son but it also points towards a future where the Messi vs Ronaldo debate doesn’t go away. The Barca forward and Cristiano Ronaldo have 11 Ballon d’Or titles between them and fans are usually split over which is the best of all time. At 34 Ronaldo is also nearing the end of his career, though again he could still go on for some time, and his son is also impressing in the youth ranks. Cristiano Ronaldo Jr is nine years old, the sons share the same age gap as their dads, and has scored some eye-catching goals for Juventus’ youth teams. There aren’t many records in football that the two dads haven’t broken between them and both are considered the best ever.
