Immediately after winning the Club World Cup, Lionel Messi was spirited over into the pitchside studio where, like many thousands of Westerners before him, he had his mind assaulted and obliterated by Japanese television…

    hahahaha messis face

  2. Terry Sheddingham says:

    They absolutely *adore* him on Japanese TV. In the match build-up, they were showing clips from the tournament of him playing, except it was things like an exceptionally normal assist to Keita and an overhead kick which went nowhere near the goal. Japanese people are often in awe of foreign people simply because they’re foreign.

    Oh, and if that was Messi’s translator on the left, he was doing a rubbish job.

    Confused???? So I’m I ! ! !

    Maybe they should have asked him about the drug enhancements he took during the age of 9 – 16.

    When he was cured of his so called growth illness? If he continue treatment after being cured? And if he thinks Ronaldo would get the same treatment if he had this dodgey past?

    Worlds Greatest – Human Experiment!

    Whole video is priceless.

    At first Messi is like, no interviews. Then they tell him its only one question and he’s like, ok, quick because I want to go celebrate.

    They asked him: What will your life be like after your retirement?

    Answer: I’m not thinking about my retirement.

    Hence, Messi’s face.

    @McRico…..Ronaldo would most definately not get the same treatment because he is a diving cheat!Kinda taints ya ;)

    HGH made his muscles grow to normal size. Unfortunately for conspiracy theorists, it doesn’t exactly enhance cognitive decisions, a good touch or footballing genius. So those kind of arguments really carry no weight

    i love barcelona very much.i thank GOD for them

  10. Sam says:

    Whats wrong with these people? Can’t they get a decent English Japanese speaker to translate? Idiots!

  11. p says:


    i think you’re confusing him with Xavi. Messi has made his career out of making explosive runs with his powerful lower body. His game is based on speed, acceleration, strength and agility. Cristiano has always been a more technical footballer, at any point in their careers. For a long time Messi was a fairly one dimensional pacey winger, even if he was the best one since he was 19.

    Poor little bugger, didn’t see it coming did he? The face really is priceless though…

  14. Danilo says:

    When you and I, and every-contemporary-else die, messi will still be the No.1. so definitly your comment carry no weight

  15. MFON ADONIS says:
