We kick off 2019 with a look back at Messi's early days in the first team
Before he became the most famous number 10 in the world, Leo Messi wore the number 19 shirt for FC Barcelona. When he first came into the first team, the squad number was occupied by club legend Ronaldinho, up until the Brazilian's departure in 2008/09.
During the years prior to that, Messi scored some amazing goals, such as defining strike against Getafe in 2007 and his 2006/07 hat trick against Real Madrid at the Camp Nou. We've gathered up 19 of his best goals with the number 19 shirt, as the perfect way to welcome 2019.
