Barcelona are far too dependent on one superstar. It's a problem - Lionel Messi Wallpaper

According to ESPN Lionel Messi has taken 125 of Barcelona’s 321 goal scoring attempts in La Liga this term. That’ s a staggering 38.9%. Compared to 32.5% during last season’s goal barrage by the wold’s best player. And only 25% in 2010/2011 When Barcelona lifted the European Cup. A season earlier Messi was responsible for only 27% of his team’s goal attempt, and on the all conquering team of 2008-2009 he did not lead the team in goal attempts – Samuel Eto’o was the lead target men.

By contrast – Andres Iniesta, one of finest attacking midfielders of our time has attempted only four shots on goal in his last nine matches.

In simple words: in the last few months Barcelona have been focusing on their superstar breaking some ancient scoring records from Brazil and Germany. Not on being the world’s best football team.
