Former Chelsea boss, Carlo Ancelotti has finally revealed the secret behind stopping Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi.
The world-famous and highly respected tactician, after analyzing and doodling out his plan, came to the conclusion that the only way to stop Messi is to let him have what he wants – goals – because in reality, there is indeed no way to stop the legendary Argentine striker.
According to The Sun UK, the former Real Madrid boss used a crudely drawn diagram to illustrate how he instructed his La Liga side to deal with the Argentine wizard.
He explained in his Sina Sports column: “The best way to stop [Messi] is by defending as a team, keeping the space between the lines tight and now allowing him to touch the ball.
“You need a lot of players in midfield to make that happen. That reduces Messi’s options and he will see less of the ball, at least in dangerous positions.”
Messi has found the net 36 times this season and was on target this weekend against Getafe — although it may be wise to just foul him and give him a penalty judging his current blues from 12 yards.
Ancelotti continued: “But if Messi is at 100 per cent physically, it is impossible to try to stop him, no matter who the coach is and what his strategy is.
“His enormous talent makes it nearly impossible to anticipate what he will do, so there is no way to keep him quiet.”
