Messi is a legend

Lionel Messi, the God, the legend. I just can't believe how much I want to meet you in real life, and just get to see you..
I'm a really big fan from Sweden, you've been my idol since I was 6. (I'm 16 now!)

I'll always follow you, Leo, and support you. And if you come to Sweden I'll do my best to try to find you. <3

Much love and respect.

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.

Hi Messi,

I seriously didn't know much bout football till the time my bro forced me to see one of your match( I don't remember which date and with whom).
My god I jus could see you how you were tackling the ball and scoring it, it was real fun.
As I used to stay away but whenever got chance to meet my bro it's obvious he was into football and me into admiring you;)
I know how he used to get up in middle of night with set alarm just to watch your match as we used live in India and for us every big match was according to midnight or late night timings.
Today, here in Sydney I'm watching match alone and missing my bro so much.
There is one Request if you can fulfill
I would grateful you can just leave a message for him or share a video.

Cheers,
Sue

Dear Lionel Messi,


Hi, growing up i loved to play Soccer/Football and you are the one that inspired me. I work for a radio show called NU Style Radio. There are over 2000 students listening to it weekly. I chose you as a person who I look up to and have been inspired by. You motivate me to become a great Soccer/Football player and to practice everyday to achieve my goals. I thought about having you on the show by phone call interview. Can I please do a short 4-8 minute interview with you? It would make my day and my teacher/school would be honored to have you on.
Thank you for your time. Have a good day and hopefully I get to meet you soon!
Sincerely,
Kelsey Dang

When in 2007 you lost your first final in the Copa America I was not happy but, with a strong belief that you would one day get your highly deserved silver ware at home and in the senior team. The three sequential lose of the finals again even made me sin because I know with your exceptional performances you did not deserve those loses from the game of soccer of which you are the best ever. I sin because I said and I am still saying that there are unseen forces behind these; there are people who do not want you to supersede their fragile records, they are intimidated by your ever rising spectacular performance in the game of soccer. That is by the way, because I know there is God.
Leo, my devastation in your latest lose new no bound. I was totally chained by it to the extend that I could not find my apatite for a very long time, that is because I share in your victories and I take the lion share in your loses. I was on the point of overcoming my predicament, then suddenly you announced your resignation from International Football!( I initial thought you said it out of grieve ) I took that with a pinch of salt. It definitely add poison to my already poisoned ego. I said to myself "Why Messi"
I want to tell you, Leo: they created football but, you dictate the game because you are the epitome of soccer. Without you in the Argentine team means there is no football team in Argentina; Leo, I said these because no one there is playing even a fraction of what you are playing. Why leave them when they need you most? why leave them when they are ill-prepared for the national task? You lost that penalty not because you are not the best of all time, you lost that penalty because you are human. No human but, God is perfect all the time. By hanging the boot in the internationals it means you have quit and I do not think your gentility and level head personality deserves that.
Please Leo, go to Russia, I pray that victory awaits you there.

Te queremos mucho

Don't retire from national soccer just because your ego is to big, who cares if you miss a pk even if its in the final of a tournament (unless its the world cup) Some people won't like because you're up set because of " one" pk. Please don't quit because one miss, thank you for your time!

hi dear,
I was sad and upset not because you lost 4th chance to bring title in argentina but you gave up so easily . I know its really disappointing.
do you think punishing your self is the best contribution you could ever do for nation ?
don't say you did much you could do . you still need to do far more even beyond we have expected .
try to understand and respect the feeling and emotions of your supporters . we all are always there with you .
God bless you
lots of love and best wishes

(30 Jun 2016 - 09:28)
Dear messi
I am from pakistan and i have to tell you one thing you are the greatest ever football player . No doubt . Haters can say anything . I am writing to motivate my champ
Recently you lost the copa america final to chile. People can congratulate chile , but infact they never scored against your team just like last year. They won on penalties. I know losing 3 finals hurts but did you lost by being outscored ?nope. You lost by close margins you and your teammates had chances but luck was not on your side . Only luck otherwise argentina had been a strong team
Dont worry failure is a part of life but failing so close shows your determination. Luck didnt support you . No problem.
But the sad news you are retiring for la albiceleste. Why? I was nearly crying when you made that decision. Missing a penalty doesnt end your career. But dont give up . I know losing 3 finals in 3 years hurts but dont give up. Be a champ. A winner who rises from heartbreaking defeats to stardom . Dont give up. Take these defeats as a source of motivation . Your team is the best no.1 in fifa rankings and having the best offense. Please dont retire . Please. Ok argentina might never give you love and respect but they are surely begging you not to retire. Will argentina be a strong team without you? Will they reach finals without you. NO!!!!!! Would you like them to go in shambles ? Think of those who idolise you . Would you make them weep? Destroy their hearts ? Dont retire after missing that stupid penalty. Roberto baggio missed in 1994 world cup final but he cams back strong . In 2012 champions league final bastian scwheinsteiger missed and bayern lost but he came back strong and in 2013 won it. Even cristiano your rival has missed but does he retire? He vows to come back strong. And you are the greatest of all you retire? I am a die hard supporter of argentina and i want you back.
You know what you and cristiano made me a football fanatic. In 2009. I was only and watched the highlights of barcelona versus man united. The champions league final . You vs cristiano. I instantly became a football fanatic due to your performance and i dont regret it.
In 2010 world cup. Argentina was knocked out in quarter finals i couldnt sleep the whole night and cried a lot and had to be consoled by my mother. I was nearly 12 years old. Then came the 2014 world cup. You played well and argentina reached the final. But lost after a tough contest 1-0 . You were sad and i cried again. I was nearly 16 . Then came 2015 and 2016 copa finals which argentina lost in penalties . Dont worry . Dont depress yourself. I know you will come back strong
In the end i am thankful to you because due to your playing style. I became a football fan 7 years ago and i am proud of it. I support argentina more than my cricket team and i always get emotional when argentina loses . But dont retire . We need you. Imagine about those who were inspired by you and idolise you including me. Dont make us sad . Please comeback. I know if you come back you will definitely win because you will be more motivated than ever in your life .
Please reconsider your decision your decision and come back . If argentina can reach finals with you than they can only win with you.
Come back leo!!!!
Hope to see you at russia in 2018 and hope that you hoist the trophy in the Moscow sky on 15 july 2018!!!!!!
I stand with you and i know you will win in 2018!
Wishing you success in the future for barca and argentina!

FOR EVERY DARK CLOUD, THERE IS A SILVER LINING


GREETINGS.

GOOD LUCK!

(29 Jun 2016 - 09:10)
Leo. Con suerte tenemos solamente unos 75 giros alrededor del sol... uno por año. 29 de ellos ya han pasado para vos, y la vida sigue su curso rápidamente.. con o sin nosotros. En esos poquitos años ya has conseguido muchísimo mas que un titulo (que tantas veces es un simple accidente). Lo que si estas dejando en un ejemplo excepcional para todos nosotros, para mis hijos jovenes que te ven caer y levantarte sin protestar. Que te ven jugar sin exagerar, sin necesitar de artimañas ni de regalos. Lo que estas dejando es un trofeo de la mas alta magnitud que es tu vida, tu ejemplo y tu entereza. Olvídate de los ideales y simplemente enfocarte en el rostro de un niño que ve en vos lo que ellos desean llegar a ser: no un fenómeno del futbol sino un ejemplo de vida.

Gracias

A Letter To Leo
- -Paridhi
(29 Jun 2016 - 09:10)
Dear Messi,

Football,for more than anyone else is for you.
You said "enough is enough." But the truth is that we've not really had enough of you yet.
I might sound selfish,but yes the more is less for you,and we never ever will have "enough" of you.
When I started watching football,my father told me about Diego Maradona and how he was the greatest to have ever stepped on a football pitch.

Years on,I'll tell the same, about you.At 29,Lionel Messi,you are everything football ever stood for.
The world knows that it wants you to stay more than anything it has ever wanted. I can't tell you how many souls are ready to be sold,to keep you here,mine included. These are the things wars are fought over and constellations are shaped out of.

But, Leo, remember we've loved you through thick, thin and whatever fell in middle and we have believed in magic because you showed it to us.

It has been 12 years since I first saw you on your merry dance. And these tears know that 12 more would also be less a part of eternity that we want to keep seeing you do,what you do best.

Dazzle. Shine. Mesmerize. Instil hope. Make us believe.

Ans if this really was the last time that we saw you in Argentina colours then all I have to say to you is,thank you,for everything.

You'll be missed in blue and white.

Messi, please dont retire. It is just impossible to accept that we wont see you in Argentine colors. Please Messi, please don't retire. Atleast wait till 2018, I am sure you will lift the World Cup then.

Please don't retire now, please.

I didn't like football until I watched the matches you play. In my opinion, there are so many people like me.
I was so sad when your team lost yesterday, but evereyone also has trouble comment. Please keep playing football, the beautiful thing you gave to human.
Messi, try your best!
PLEASE DONT LEAVE MESSI
- Iram Shahed
(28 Jun 2016 - 08:46)
I don't know if you will ever see this Messi but I went to my first ever soccer match to see you play and watching you lose was so depressing. Seeing you break down was even more depressing. However, I didn't lose faith in your talents. Please don't leave Argentina I have faith that you guys will definetely win next year.
Your playing decision
- Todd H. USA, Ohio

Dear Leo,
I know you don't speak English, and I don't speak Spanish, sorry. I hope that you do read this and someone can translate it for you, though we do not speak the same language, I hear you through the game! I just wanted to tell you that through all the noise and comments you have been hearing/reading lately there are us who support you no matter what your decision is, on where and when you play. You need to do what is right for you and you alone! No matter what happens in the future you are one of the best players I have ever had the honer to watch play. It is obvious that you are a good person who just works his ass off on the field just to be the best you can be, From where I sit in Ohio (USA), it is apparent, your love is for the game. Titles and awards are nice but at the end of the day, it's all about the love for the game. I betting you would get just as much enjoyment playing a pick-up game in the neighborhood as you would playing in front of 80,000 people. If you ever get sick of listening to world and just want to play to remember the love and enjoyment, look me up I would love to kick it around with you. From one player to another, thanks and good luck Leo. Todd
For messi

Leo. Nose si tu leas esto. Soy un super fan de ti pero nunca te eh visto jugar en vivo por no tener la plata. Pero eres el jugador mas grande del mundo. El mejor que este mundo a visto. Y te admiro mucho. Se que mucha gente no te quiere por no poder ganar con Argentina. Pero ustedes son grandes. Siempre cargas al equipo. No por nada eres el mejor. No te retires de la seleccion. Soy mexicano y la verdad rompi en llanto el dia de ayer al ver que decias que te ivas. No te vayas. Sige y calla bocas como tu lo sabes aser. Te admiro mucho Messi. Sige para delante y no te rindas. Aun sueño con verte jugar algun dia. Saludos

You have inspired me my whole life. Whenver i feel down and despair or think that this is something i can not achieve i take motivation from you , knowing that once you had nothing but you never gave up upon your dreams you worked hard maybe harder than anyone to become an overnight success.
And now seeing that you are leaving international football because you didn't won anything with your country is tearing me apart... i know it is harder for you than anyone ,even for ous to understand how you fell. But leaving your team is not going to give them any trophy. Keep on trying you deserve it better than anyone.... you want it more than anyone .Pleaese don't leave.... please for your country for your fans for lives that you inspire for people who have faith in you and most of all for yourself i beg you Messi.
