“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary – He starts the run at a minimal pace, straight at you. You are backing off gently or just covering your territory because it doesn’t make any sense to move. There’s nothing alarming about the situation – you’ve been in plenty of such benign one on ones with other attackers before. Leo Messi is getting closer to you, into your territory, where you feel comfortable and want him to be. It’s almost as if he’s inviting you to inspect the ball; to win it off him. But of course, that probably isn’t his intention.
The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary run and makes it somewhat extraordinary. Shifting his body weight on to his left side, he takes a couple of strides away from you. Now you’re looking for the reason…but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really thinking. In fact you are confident that you can track him and win the ball with your stronger right foot. You know he’s going to bamboozle you. But you wouldn’t clap yet. You are waiting for him to falter, take a touch too heavy. And then you decide it’s time to intercept and stretch your right leg forward into the path of the magician. That’s where he pulls off the third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”. Your right foot is on his path, where you want it to be. But he is more ingenious than you thought. And quick too. With a simple flick, he has put the ball into that miniscule pocket of space between your rooted right foot and the next defender at whom he has already set his eyes on. And then he jumps and glides over your challenge, that low center of gravity helping him regain his composure and the ball. Once completely in control of the situation, he proceeds on to the next guy and then the next and so on and so forth. All you can see is the back side of his number 10 jersey with the name wirtten on it – MESSI .”
“Messi gathers momentum as he goes past players. Others lose it.”
“Simply put, sudden bursts of pace while changing direction while faking it with at least 2 skills while there is no space to run into with 4 players around, sometimes 5 and all this while having close control. Stand still. Then, make a motion to move straight ahead, take a small step or two, now try turning 90 degrees to your right while bursting into your top speed in a fraction of a second or a second, sprint for 3-5 seconds and make a sudden stop while turning 90 degree to your left at that speed. Do this without ball for 10 minutes. You’ll know why Messi is THE King of Dribbling.”
