Lionel Andrés Messi (born 24 June 1987 in Rosario) is an Argentine international football player who currently plays for FC Barcelona in the Primera División, and appears on Argentina's national team. Often touted in the media as New Maradona, Messi has been publicly named as his "successor" by Diego Maradona himself.


He is regarded as the best football player of his generation and one of the best in the history of the sport. Messi received several Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year nominations by the age of 21, and won in 2009 and 2010.


Video: Best of Lionel Messi



Lionel Messi was born in Santa Fe Province on 24 June 1987. At the age of five, he started playing football for Grandoli, a club coached by his father. In 1995, Messi switched to Newell's Old Boys. At the age of 11, he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency.


River Plate showed interest in Messi's progress, but did not have enough money to pay for the treatment of the illness, which cost over £500 a month. As Argentina's economy was collapsing, Carles Rexach, then sporting director of FC Barcelona, was made aware of Messi's talent, and Barcelona signed him after watching him play, offering to pay for the medical bills if he was willing to move to start a new life in Spain. His family moved with the young player to Europe and he starred in the club’s youth teams.


He soon found himself starting for the Barcelona B team, averaging more than a goal per game, by scoring 35 goals in 30 matches.


In October 2004, Messi made his official début for the first team against RCD Espanyol, becoming the third-youngest player ever to play for FC Barcelona. When he scored his first senior goal for the club against Albacete Balompié on May 1, 2005, Messi was 17 years, 10 months and 7 days old, becoming the youngest to ever score in a La Liga game for FC Barcelona.

Hello dear, this is Grace from the Philippines. I just want you to know that you are a big influence to me when it comes to football. I really did not love football game until the time I've watched you playing during the World Cup. Then I said to myself "Wow, this man is different. He is just so genius." From then on, my admiration for you Leo continue to grow and did research everything about your life from past to present and I watched your previous games in youtube. I just couldn't help myself but astonish how magical and amazing you are as a player. I've also come to know how humble and generous you are to the young children through your charities and foundation. I just hope that you will win this year's Ballon 'd Or not because you are better than than Ronaldo and Neuer but simply because you deserve it. Till now, Im still wishing that my dream may come true, and that is to meet you in person and watch you play with my naked eyes. Stay humble and take care of yourself because I, your avid fan here in the Philippines cares for you. Te Amo Leo! Vamos.

Hi Messi,
I am a mother of 3 little boys (6, 7, 8), my oldest got interested in soccer watching you in FiFa 2014, you are his legend........he is turning 9 on Christmas Day and for Christmas he has asked me for everything that has to do with your attire as well as tickets so he can go watch you play. I live in California and it is pretty hard to get him everything he wants. I will like to ask if you can send him a signed shirt. I will really appreciate this as well as he will treasure it.

Thank you,
Lisa Torres

Hello this comment is for messi, I love you as a player, and you are great , but there were two things I wanted to mention regarding the world cup, first when you get the beat player award, you need to appreciate , and be gratefull, and as a great sportsman that you are , you should have congratulated Germany, and their coach for their accomplishment, that is what makes you the greater athlete , not by being upset, and crying, remember we can always get better, and try again to become the best at what you do.
your greatest fan
