Gerard Deulofeu is NOT the next Messi >> Read My Mind


Gerard Deulofeu is one of those players that are destined to make an impact from a very early age. He has the skills, the desire and the pace needed to succeed.

In the following video, you can see how 2004 Barça stars Juliano Belletti and Giovani Van Bronckhorst shared their skills with the FC Barcelona youngsters as part of the TV3 series 'La clase del Barça'.

We need to be careful though, such pressure sometimes turns a very promising player into an unfinished product (it recently happened to Giovani Dos Santos and Gai Assulin). Nicknaming anybody 'the next Messi' is literally setting them up for failure - the is only ONE Messi every 100 years.

Let's give the La Masia directors time to turn this amazing young player into a first team choice in the next few years. The kid obviously has fantastic skills, but please don't compare him to the world's best, it doesn't help.
