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.

  4. Chúc mừng Messi được ký hợp đồng mới. - Messi Idol (6 Jul 2017 - 09:24)

    Chúc mừng bạn đã được ký hợp đồng với mức lương "khủng", vì bạn mà tôi đã trở nên yêu mến đội bóng Barcelona, khi chơi game PES tôi chỉ chọn đội Barcelona, tôi cũng chỉ xem trận đấu có đội Bar và tôi thích xem bạn thi đấu, có lúc tôi đã đặt cược vào đội Bar để có hy vọng đổi đời, tuy nhiên hiện tại tôi lại nợ nhiều quá, thật là thất vọng khi năm nay Bar không giành được danh hiệu nào cả, hy vọng mùa giải tới mọi việc sẽ tốt đẹp hơn. Mong có ngày nào đó được gặp bạn.

  14. Coming to See you in Melbourne - Rahul Pandey (27 May 2017 - 12:56)

    Hi Messi,

    "Namaste" from India.

    Like your other crazy fans, here is my best shot to see you play and meet in person. I live in India and coming to watch you play in Melbourne on 9th June.

    I hope to meet you and get a jersey autographed by you. It's been my dream to see you playing live. It will be an amazing opportunity if I get to meet you in person and get a Jersey signed by you. (I just ordered one from UK due to non-avaiability in India). I am staying in the hotel Pullman on Park next to MCG and incase Argentinian team happen to stay there, I would love to meet you.

    Hope to get my dream fulfilled. My email is rahulpandey@me.com

    Cheers,

    Rahul

  25. The Game of Football - Raz-UK (28 Apr 2017 - 08:48)

    The wonderful sport of my life is the football. Unfortunately, I can't play this game anymore due to a damaged knee because of an attack that happened to me in 2005. The middle forward position is the perfect one for me, when I was playing friendly matches with the boys. When I see Lio playing and how he passes through those big and strong footballers, I was seeing myself either he is giving me a pass or I pass to him. I wondered if I face Lio, can I take the ball from him? or he will just go so fast and I'll be unable to see the ball !... You know what, he is the most talented footballer on this earth I've ever seen and the best player of the world as well. I don't care what the media say about him.
    If I recover from this damage, I only wish there will be some day, in the future, that I can play with him a few minutes.

    Thank you

  26. Fan - Stefan (14 Apr 2017 - 09:36)

    Messi, can you sand me 100.000 €, it would make me vary happy, and for you that's nothing, you will spend it on another expensive car or something, but I can live with that money 10 years.

  27. We are still believe on you Messi - Someday (12 Apr 2017 - 08:14)

    You are psychologically strained ... you do not need any chemotherapy. You just need to be part of the spirit of hope and regain your mental strength, which is clearly influenced by the various pressures. Messi You just need to look for confidence in yourself and retrieve it. If you find the good you will find it. It is with God the Lord of the Worlds; ask Him and be sure that your request will be answered

  28. Weak points in barca players - JCMB (9 Apr 2017 - 09:28)

    Hey Leo
    I have observed that the weakest point in Barca team is what I would call "Lack of physical puissance in the players". By that I mean, contrary to what tecnical team believes, the players dont run as fast as the oponents, and in body dispute for ball possetion they are weaker.

    Rafa Pol, the fitness coach, believes that the best way to train is by playing, not doing any isolated physical exercise.

    The lack of physical puissance in you guys are bringing dificulty to you in developing your best play. Your oponents are becoming aware of those weakness in you and they are exploring it the best possible.

    Please take just a time and analyse how swiftly Real Madrid players recover and keep ball possession from their oponents, how they tighten their defence line and their ability to easily break oponents defence line. All those capability are mostly due to their physical puissance which they acquire from working on aditional isoleted fitness exercise.

    If you guys really want to become good again, and and are thinking of winning some tittle this season, you had better change from Mr Rafa's fitness perspective. Improve your physical puissance and you'll see how your play will be eassy and start generating better matches results.

  29. My son is a big fan of L. Messi playing style. - sergio and Icaro Vieira (6 Apr 2017 - 17:40)

    My son and I are big fans of yours. Even my sons goals here in the USA are on your style. Please check it out, and let us know how you like it, and we can schedule a time to talk about some business related as we can see you can make much more money on starting guiding future players.

  30. Cuando eres el mejor - Michael S. (3 Apr 2017 - 09:12)

    Leo:

    La envidia y el rencor motivan a gente pequena a actuar maliciosamente.
    El de ellos es un reinado oscuro e impotente.
    Ignoralos.
    Los que entendemos lo que vale apreciamos el futbol magico ejecutado por caballeros.
    Sabemos que la politica no tiene lugar en la cancha y a veces no hay que hacer.

    Tu inteligencia, humildad, destreza y juego de equipo te han puesto en una liga singular.
    Continua con tu magia y destreza espectacular.
    Es la mejor manera de silenciar a los que tienen grandes cuerdas vocales y pocas neuronas.

  14. Coming to See you in Melbourne - Rahul Pandey (27 May 2017 - 12:56)

    Hi Messi,

    "Namaste" from India.

    Like your other crazy fans, here is my best shot to see you play and meet in person. I live in India and coming to watch you play in Melbourne on 9th June.

    I hope to meet you and get a jersey autographed by you. It's been my dream to see you playing live. It will be an amazing opportunity if I get to meet you in person and get a Jersey signed by you. (I just ordered one from UK due to non-avaiability in India). I am staying in the hotel Pullman on Park next to MCG and incase Argentinian team happen to stay there, I would love to meet you.

    Hope to get my dream fulfilled. My email is rahulpandey@me.com

    Cheers,

    Rahul

  16. LIONEL MESSI is the best in the world - Rohit Nagchowdhuri (19 May 2017 - 09:02)

    Lionel Messi is the best in the world ,no can be like him, he is the only legendary player with epic styles of gameplay. He always comes first in my mind not because i am a crazy fan of him but i am a true believer and i will always stand at the side of Messi whatever happens in the universe.

  17. Just Messi, a Boy from Rosario - A Mom (18 May 2017 - 08:36)

    I live in a very Southern part of the USA and people don't believe me that we are your number one fans now the Barca and on the Argentina selection. Both of my boys have your jersey original from Barsa and Arg.

  25. The Game of Football - Raz-UK (28 Apr 2017 - 08:48)

    The wonderful sport of my life is the football. Unfortunately, I can't play this game anymore due to a damaged knee because of an attack that happened to me in 2005. The middle forward position is the perfect one for me, when I was playing friendly matches with the boys. When I see Lio playing and how he passes through those big and strong footballers, I was seeing myself either he is giving me a pass or I pass to him. I wondered if I face Lio, can I take the ball from him? or he will just go so fast and I'll be unable to see the ball !... You know what, he is the most talented footballer on this earth I've ever seen and the best player of the world as well. I don't care what the media say about him.
    If I recover from this damage, I only wish there will be some day, in the future, that I can play with him a few minutes.

    Thank you

  26. Fan - Stefan (14 Apr 2017 - 09:36)

    Messi, can you sand me 100.000 €, it would make me vary happy, and for you that's nothing, you will spend it on another expensive car or something, but I can live with that money 10 years.

  27. We are still believe on you Messi - Someday (12 Apr 2017 - 08:14)

    You are psychologically strained ... you do not need any chemotherapy. You just need to be part of the spirit of hope and regain your mental strength, which is clearly influenced by the various pressures. Messi You just need to look for confidence in yourself and retrieve it. If you find the good you will find it. It is with God the Lord of the Worlds; ask Him and be sure that your request will be answered

  28. Weak points in barca players - JCMB (9 Apr 2017 - 09:28)

    Hey Leo
    I have observed that the weakest point in Barca team is what I would call "Lack of physical puissance in the players". By that I mean, contrary to what tecnical team believes, the players dont run as fast as the oponents, and in body dispute for ball possetion they are weaker.

    Rafa Pol, the fitness coach, believes that the best way to train is by playing, not doing any isolated physical exercise.

    The lack of physical puissance in you guys are bringing dificulty to you in developing your best play. Your oponents are becoming aware of those weakness in you and they are exploring it the best possible.

    Please take just a time and analyse how swiftly Real Madrid players recover and keep ball possession from their oponents, how they tighten their defence line and their ability to easily break oponents defence line. All those capability are mostly due to their physical puissance which they acquire from working on aditional isoleted fitness exercise.

    If you guys really want to become good again, and and are thinking of winning some tittle this season, you had better change from Mr Rafa's fitness perspective. Improve your physical puissance and you'll see how your play will be eassy and start generating better matches results.

  29. My son is a big fan of L. Messi playing style. - sergio and Icaro Vieira (6 Apr 2017 - 17:40)

    My son and I are big fans of yours. Even my sons goals here in the USA are on your style. Please check it out, and let us know how you like it, and we can schedule a time to talk about some business related as we can see you can make much more money on starting guiding future players.

  30. Cuando eres el mejor - Michael S. (3 Apr 2017 - 09:12)

    Leo:

    La envidia y el rencor motivan a gente pequena a actuar maliciosamente.
    El de ellos es un reinado oscuro e impotente.
    Ignoralos.
    Los que entendemos lo que vale apreciamos el futbol magico ejecutado por caballeros.
    Sabemos que la politica no tiene lugar en la cancha y a veces no hay que hacer.

    Tu inteligencia, humildad, destreza y juego de equipo te han puesto en una liga singular.
    Continua con tu magia y destreza espectacular.
    Es la mejor manera de silenciar a los que tienen grandes cuerdas vocales y pocas neuronas.

    Un fanatico
