It is not over yet as Lamine Yamal continue to inspire Barcelona


Perhaps football always repeats itself, it was Diego Amando Maradona and then his protege and even better Lionel Messi, and the blessing continues with Lamine Yamal the boy who grew up just a few meters from the La Masia Academy.

The 16-year-old was the only straw to hold on as Barcelona overcame a Mallorca side who sit in the 15th position, Ilkay Gundogan should have scored earlier on but missed the penalty sport after Raphinha’s timely run and proceedings became increasingly difficult before the former Bayern Munich striker Robert assisted Lamine Yamal who reversed the ages with a lionel Messi trademark curler into the top left corner.

The young chap is showing that the La Masia Academy still has what it takes and that they can still produce the magic should a crucial need arise.

Lamine Yamal’s contract with Adidas proves he is the best after Messi, Barcelona was much improved here, full of creativity, but lacking in the key moments. That is until Yamal stepped in. Barca have their new magician.

The Blaugrana are second in La Liga at 61 points and 23 goals only trailing last season’s Champions Real Madrid with 5 points with Girona sitting in the third position with 59 points.

They say football is full of uncertainties and even though the inspired Jude Bellingham continues to inspire Real Madrid anything is possible for Lamine Yamal to replicate such a feat.

like his predecessor Lionel Messi who solely carried the burden of the club on his shoulders for over a decade.
