Not every legend is a myth. As abstract as the ones we know seem to be in those boring textbooks they made us read in school may seem, some legends do really walk among us in flesh and blood. And they are every bit as interesting as Zeus and the rest.

Needless to say, Barcelona has enjoyed as a result of the Argentine magician’s effect. So much so that a lot of pundits believe for much of Messi’s stay at Camp Nou, they never really needed a coach.
