World soccer phenom, Lionel Messi's thoughts on youth development ...

Lionel Messi
"The Barcelona youth programme is one of the best in the world," said the 20-year-old Argentine. "As a kid they teach you not to play to win, but to grow in ability as a player. "At Barca, we trained every day with the ball, I hardly ever ran without a ball at my feet. It was a form of training aimed very clearly at developing your skills."
