Lionel Messi has already scored 50 goals this season (you can see them all crammed into three minutes and 21 seconds right here), so he obviously needs to find a new challenge. So, during Barcelona's training session on Monday, Messi put on the gloves and tried his hand at stopping shots.

You might think he's a bit too short to be a goalkeeper, but as you can see in this picture Carles Puyol posted on his Facebook wall, when you can fly it just doesn't matter how tall you are.

Anyway, we're getting closer to the day Messi wins La Liga playing all 11 positions by himself.
