On Sunday, in the biggest moment of this La Liga season, Messi introduced the killer to the world.
He scored that goal, a goal in added time to beat Real Madrid in Santiago Bernabeu, and ripped his shirt off, and held it up to the horror of the thousands who stood before him.
It had been eight years since the Madrid faithful had stood and applauded the young Messi for his brilliance in an El Clasico.
He was no longer the precocious boy, the young genius who they could admire from afar. He was a man now. A bad man. He had ripped their hearts out, and there he stood, forcing them to look at his name. #leomessi #messi #elclásico #legend #fcbarcelona
