Revealed: Why Lionel Messi Avoids the Ball For the First 5 Minutes in All his Games

Many people have wondered why Lionel Messi always walks and avoids balls in the first five minutes in every game. This is something Lionel Messi has been doing for a long time. Many coaches believe that players should run and chase balls every time, and that this is a positive thing. 

People believe Lionel Messi is sluggish and unwilling to work hard because he thinks differently.

Messi takes a walk while avoiding the ball in order to observe the opponent's defense and look for openings. After that, he tries to identify their flaws and exploit them. So whenever he receives the ball, he knows what to do with it; where to pass, how to dribble past the opponent's defenders, and where to score. He accomplishes this by avoiding the balls and taking a long walk. 

He examines every aspect of the field and knows exactly where to stand and begin operations. This has aided him for many years and helped him become the finest. Guardiola was a huge assistance to him, and Lionel Messi helped him become the best.

As you can see in the image above, he has isolated himself and avoided taking the balls. As a result, he will be assessing the opponent's space and weaknesses at this time. This is why, in the first five minutes of every game, he walks a lot and avoids the balls.
