Lionel Messi, the best footballer of today, does not need any introduction. Messi’s name automatically comes to mind as soon as the name of football comes. Messi has given football what not everyone can get easily.
The world’s most watched sport, football has taken over the whole world these days. The most lost in this craze is Argentina, a country with a population of about 50 million in the southernmost part of South America. Argentina also has special reason to be happy.
Finally, after a long time of 36 years, Argentina has a chance to win the FIFA World Cup 2022 trophy for the third time. The dream of the fans of Argentina team is going to be fulfilled in no time. Team’s star player and captain Lionel Messi has raised the hope of realizing this dream again.
Something happened in Argentina on June 24, 1987, due to which the name of Argentina reached a different point. Actually on this day the greatest player of football Lionel Messi was born. Born in a middle-class family in Rosario, Messi became one of the most brilliant footballers of all time.
Messi’s childhood was like this
Lionel Messi’s father worked in a factory and his mother worked as a cleaner. Along with this, his father used to give football coaching to a club, due to which there was an atmosphere of sports in the house from the beginning. Messi joined the club along with his father, that too at the age of just five. In his childhood, he learned the basics of the game. After this he changed his club. On one hand, Messi was increasing his football skills, while on the other hand, a child of only 11 years of age was gripped by a terrible disease.
Messi had a disease called Growth Hormone Deficiency. If Messi had lived with this disease, then probably this would not be the scene of football today. Actually this is such a disease in which the growth of a person stops. But the family did not have enough money for treatment to cure Messi. On the other hand, fate had something else approved. Football club Barcelona was looking for such children in those days who were showing amazing in the game of football. The club was engaged in training such children. Meanwhile, the Barcelona club came to know about Messi and got him included in his club.
However, after joining the Barcelona club, Messi had to leave Argentina and shift to Barcelona. After this, Messi’s football career got a big and new turn, which changed his life as well as changed the attitude of football.
After joining the club, Messi was constantly involved in scoring goals for the team. Messi scored 35 goals in 30 matches during one season, due to which he started coming in everyone’s eyes. At the age of 17, Messi made his debut in the Barcelona club and became the club’s third youngest player to do so. He then scored his first goal for the senior team on 1 May 2005. He then signed his contract with Barcelona and football got a player who set an example for the world.
