Barcelona inadvertently TROLL their entire squad with Lionel Messi appreciation tweet ahead of Copa del Rey
Barcelona have managed to mock the vast majority of their own squad in a tweet designed to laud the continued incredible goalscoring heroics of their talisman Lionel Messi.
The Argentine – widely regarded as the best player in the world – is showing no signs of slowing up despite approaching the age of 32.
Messi had a thoroughly impressive 2018/19 campaign, notching 36 goals in 34 LaLiga appearances as Barca secured their 26th league title – and the forward’s 10th for the club.
Messi also clinched the Pichichi Trophy for a joint-record sixth time after finishing the top marksman in Spanish’s top flight once again.

For the first time ever, the accolade has been won by a player who has scored 15 goals more than the second-placed player, after Messi’s team-mate Luis Suarez ended the season with 21 goals to his name to finish runner-up in the LaLiga goal standings.
Barcelona took to Twitter to recognise the brilliance of their star man, tweeting a Cann table showcasing just how many goals he has scored this season.
