Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba tuned into the Copa del Rey final and witnessed Lionel Messi produce another outstanding performance that led Barcelona to a 3-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao.
The Frenchman was taken aback by the Argentine’s extraordinary solo effort that gave Barcelona the lead midway through the first half. Clearly in awe of Messi’s magisterial quality, the 22-year-old took to social media to publicly acknowledge the sublime strike from the four-time Ballon d’Or winner.
He wrote on his Facebook page: “Messi scores goals every week that most footballers are lucky to score in their entire careers.” Pogba then went on to express what he himself thought about the solo effort, saying: “Messi. Incredible.”
