I'm big fans of messi......

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.

Lio, please don't go away. You are the talisman of Barça and have been at the club since you were 13. The Blaugrana is your real home and if you leave, you will leave millions broken-hearted. Thousands of fans attend your matches to see your team, especially you, and if you leave, where will they go? Please try to understand that better days are coming, and you just have to wait for them. This bad phase will pass quickly, so please don't worry. Please don't ignore this 13 yr old's request.....Never leave Barça.....Please.

Don't Leave leo
- Luai Awad
(7 Jan 2015 - 10:00)
Please Leo Don't leave.
Just wait ,the bad people will leave.
Leaving Barcelona will only cheer Real Madrid and Chelsea fans.
You Are The legend and the Icon Of Barcelona.Luis Enrique will be kicked off .and you will get all the honor you deserve.You still have many trophies to win here at Nou Camp.Don't give the enemies the opportunity to break your records as top scorer in La liga .
Don't lose the chance of being the top scorer in La Liga for ever.
the record you have now can be broken easily by Cristiano next year if you leave

I agree that you suffered a lot in the last two years.the lack of support from the management.
But we all support you and the new management of course will.
Don't break the hearts of millions of your fans all over the world.
we love u legend

I am the biggest fan of Lionel messi even though that my dad dose not have the money to let me in a soccer team because he is running back on bills but I still try my hardest to be like him so I just wish that I could met him it would be the bet day of my life and if you are wondering how I am telling you this is that I am in school right now telling you this my dad thinks that even if he is running back on his bills that he is going to pay for my uniform and and for my education so that when I grow up I wont end up like him not going to school and not getting a good job and that job is going to be the next messi. I live in Colorado green valley ranch adras 5059 perth street.

(9 Dec 2014 - 09:30)
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,
