Video: Messi scores from behind the goal during training

Looks like his recovery training is going pretty well anyway

Just when you thought that you’d seen Messi score every type of possible goal, he proves you wrong by coming up with a new and wonderful way to get it in to the auld onion bag. Although it is only in his recovery training, it’s still a brilliant way to find the back of the net *yes, we know there is no net there), and now we know that not even being off the pitch can stop this man from scoring goals.

As impressive as this is however, it still wouldn’t count as a goal, so the joke is on Messi, why is he even bothering to practice this?

Hat-tip to Andrew ‘absolute diabolical’ Wiseman for this
