Lionel Messi is arguably the greatest player in the world.
So, what would happen if he left Barcelona and signed for League 2 side Grimsby?
Well, YouTuber FNG decided to find out – using FIFA 17’s Career Mode.
Could the mercurial Argentine lead them to promotion? Or would he struggle to make an impact?
Before we kick off, let’s take a look at just how good he is.
The 29-year-old has an incredible 93 overall rating, with 92 acceleration and 87 sprint speed.
His dribbling is a near perfect 97 (it should really be 99) while his finishing, ball control and free kick accuracy are all rated in the 90s.
In other words, the man’s a machine.
Sadly, at the end of season one, it’s been a disastrous season for the Argentine.
Grimsby finish in 22nd in league 2 winning 11 games and losing 22.
But it’s Messi’s stats that are the biggest cause of concern. He fails to feature in the league’s 25 top scorers – picking up just 11 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions.
Maybe it’s just teething problems… surely the Argentine can pull it back in season two?
Grimsby do even worse – finishing 23rd.
So, it seems – on FIFA anyway – that Messi can’t perform miracles.
However, in real life we think it would be very, very different.
