Lionel Messi paid an express visit to Italy on Monday to see his nutritionist Guiluano Poser after making yet more history at the weekend.
The Argentine struck his 400th La Liga goal as Barcelona saw off Eibar 3-0 on Sunday to consolidate their place at the top of the table.
And it was followed by a flight to Italy to see nutritionist Guiluano Poser early on Monday morning. He was back in Catalonia by 3pm.
Messi, who travelled with Barca player liaison officer Pepe Costa, is no stranger to visiting Poser who has been a trophy part of his team.
His last trip came prior to the World Cup in Russia when Argentina disappointingly bowed out at the last-16 stage.Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria and Luciano Vietto are also among Vietto’s clients.
Messi’s diet is a crucial part of his greatness and what has allowed him to become the best player to ever kick a football.
His strike on Sunday reaffirmed his place among football’s immortals and helped ensure Barca would maintain their five-point cushion from second-placed Atletico Madrid.
The Catalan giants sit 10 points clear of Clasico rivals Real Madrid who are fourth in La Liga after a nightmare season for now
