The man who won 5 Golden Balls

He is a rignt forward and the number 10 of the team. He is considered like the best football player of all the time.

He is small but his 1.69m tall makes him a great skiller. He trains a lot of time at Joan Gamper training's camp because Barcelona are each year engaged in three (or four) different competitions, so they are playing a game every three days in average. Leo is married and has a child. At 28 years old, he continues to progress every year and score a lot of goals.

Life in Lionel Messi's world

He dreams for a world where all the children will be happy, that's why Barcelona has a sponsor as Unicef.

Things you might not know about Lionel Messi

When he was a child, he played football in a little team in Argentina, but for every games, he was on the bench because he was too small. But one day, just before the end of a game, his grandmother told to the trainer "Let play Lio, he will save you the game". So the trainer told Leo to come in the pitch. Leo scored two goals and his team won the match. So now, every time he scores a goal, he puts his finger up and says "Thank You" to his grandmother (who died) because without her, he never would have become a (great) football payer.
