Lionel Messi the Teacher

136 0

Is Leo Messi giving his secrets away? It appears that way. Why not learn how to dribble the soccer ball like the best player to ever play the game.

If you want to learn how to dribble like Lionel Messi, watch the video below. What he has to say: go at speed towards the defender straight on, so you can break to the left or the right.

One thing that jumps out to me about Messi, is he keeps the ball very close to him, touching the ball with every step when he dribbles, but he will push the ball a few yards ahead of himself when he sees an open space or when there’s a chance to break free for a shot. The ball is always on a string and he’s able to push the ball further ahead with a burst of speed when there’s an opening.
