Hi My Dare Lovely Barcelona Players My Name Is YUSUF SALIHU nigeria am happy and proud of being your fan, and i continue wishing you victory... special regards to NEYMAR DA SILVA JUNIOR.

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, I am very sorry to trouble you, I was wondering if you could help direct me please. We are coming over from Scotland for my son’s 7th birthday from the 25th of February until the 1st of march and will be attending the sivilla game on the 28th as my son is a Barcelona fanatic and this trip was what he has been waiting for since he became interested in the team since he was very young. I was wondering if there is any possible way to meet any of the players or even be able to have them sign something for him this would make him the happiest little boy ever. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated, thank you

Hi Lionel are really an amazing player and you really make our planet interesting......As a Zambian in Africa, I always postpone other programs when Barca is playing. All I can say is that there is no player at the moment on the Earth who is as humble as you are. My greatest and happiest moment will be that time when I will find chance to just see you and give u a hand shake..In Zambia we support barcalona and we will always ssupport barca.. keep it up Lionel Messii.. If my first born child will be a boy, I will name him after you.. Africa for barca with our great player Lionel Messii
Perfect gift...

Hi Messi, i know that you are in Dubai until tomorrow, and it might be too much to ask you a favor to give 3 minutes of your time to meet my husband (just shake his hand), he is a huuugeee fan of yours as maybe also most of UAE - but for my husband, he is planning to give to our son to be (as I am pregnant with a boy) his father name and your name... This is to show you how much he loves you as a human being...
P.S.: I can imagine you have more important meetings to attend and I'm being selfish, but I can't imagine him happier in his life than having meet you in real life (except our children)...
With all the respect to any outcome - thank you for breaking all the records existing till date in the football world ✌️✌✌

Messi's Fan
- Dawa Dawa
(22 Dec 2015 - 10:50) every being on this Mother Earth!!! I have watched quite a number of interviews regarding his football career. I have come to know that almost all the goals he has scored came from his left foot. Critics have mentioned that he is left-footed and relies on the same foot. Well....all I can say every being on this planet (as mentioned earlier) "Where Will He Be If His Right Foot was equally as good as LEFT". I mean....he is already a Number One Magician with with one wand....imagine if he does his magic with two. Defenders know that he always try to take the ball towards left still why can't they stop him??????????????????????

Amado Lionel Andrés:
Hace mucho que vengo tratando contigo. Quiero que sepas que eres muy especial para mí, ya que te he creado a mí imagen y semejanza. Sé como te sientes, aun sin que me lo digas, escucho tu silencio, conozco tus temores y veo tu soledad. Lionel, cuando te formabas en el vientre de tu madre, tu embrión vieron mis ojos. Allí envié que ese cuerpecito tuviese un soplo de mi Espíritu, para que un día pudieras comunicarte conmigo. Soy real y te he cuidado siempre. Muchas veces has pensado que ha sido suerte, pero ha sido mi gracia y mi misericordia que te está cubriendo. Te invito a que me dejes entrar en tu vida, que me recibas como tu Señor y suficiente Salvador. En la cruz del Calvario di mi Sangre por toda la humanidad y tú y los tuyos están incluidos. Soy yo el único que puede perdonar pecados. Lee Mi Palabra, la Biblia y clama a Mí y Yo te responderé, y te enseñare cosas grandes y dificultuosas que tú no conoces. Te espero. Te ama, Jesucristo
Lionel Messi is the best.
