Inter Miami forward Lionel Messi has explained why he walks around on the pitch during football matches.

Messi is popular for strolling around the field during games.

The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner is always seen scouring the field before making a move to get in play with the rest of his teammates.

“When I was at Newell’s, there were two or three times a week we were sent to run around the grounds. I used to hide behind a tree. Running without a ball was never my thing. Heh.

“I have always been very self-critical. I am the first to know what I do right and what I do wrong.

When I walk, I analyse the opponent’s positioning, how we stand when we don’t have the ball, get away from the marker and be able to initiate a counterattack.

“I don’t pay much attention to GPS, statistics or data. I never cared how much I ran in a match,” Messi told Clank Media.
