Photos: Rosario local finds Leo Messi watching himself tormenting defences on TV while working out in a gym

Staying motivated when one is already at the pinnacle of one’s profession is a real challenge but like many challenges he has faced in his long and illustrious career Lionel Messi seems to have found a solution to that problem as well.

While the debate still rages on as to who is the best footballer of this generation it’s safe to say that the little Argentine has somewhat edged out Cristiano Ronaldo since the former Real superstar moved to Turin.

With individual accolades pouring in and milestones running out the 32-year-old seems to have found a real motivation to keep pushing forward – himself.

Messi’s fans look to be in a jubilant mood on Twitter after a Rosario local spotted the little wizard watching highlights of himself tormenting defences during a recent workout session and loved the attitude on display from the Barca superstar.

Only the best for the best! Check out the photos here:
