Who is his father, Messi?
Professional soccer player Lionel Andres Messi was born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina on 24 June 1987, making Cancer his zodiac sign. He’s currently playing for Inter Miami of Major League Soccer (MLS) and for the Argentina national soccer team; Messi’s won six European Golden Shoes (record holder) and seven Ballon d’Or awards, while he’s known best for the time that he spent playing for Barcelona, during which he won 34 trophies.
Messi was raised in Rosario alongside his two older and one younger sibling, by their mother Celia Cuccittini who was employed at a magnet manufacturing workshop, and father Jorge Messi who was the manager of a steel factory. Messi began playing soccer at a very early age, and was four when he joined the club Grandoli; he initially cheered for Newell’s Old Boys, and was six when he joined the club. Aged 10, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency which nearly ended his career; it took him four years to complete his growth hormone treatment.
He was 13 when he signed a contract with Barcelona in February 2001, and he and his family thus moved to Spain; his mother and siblings soon moved back to Argentina, with his father staying with him. Messi spent a year practicing soccer at the youth academy La Masia de Can Planes, and in February 2002 enrolled at Royal Spanish Football Federation. He became the top scorer during his first season (2002-2003) in the youth side, scoring 36 goals in 30 games and effectively winning the league for the Cadetes A, also winning the Catalan and Spanish cups. He was invited to join Arsenal at the end of the season, but chose to remain with Barcelona.
Messi’s professional debut was on 16 November 2003, when he was 16 years, four months and 23 days old, entering in the 75th minute against Porto; he befriended Brazilian star Ronaldinho, who helped Messi adapt to the first team.
He signed his first professional contract on 4 February 2004, and spent the 2004-2005 season as a starter for Barcelona B; he began playing for the first team on 16 October 2004, and became a starter in June 2005, after turning 18. He had to miss the start of La Liga because of legal issues, but became eligible to play on 26 September after becoming a Spanish citizen; Messi went on to score eight goals in 25 games, but suffered a torn hamstring on 7 March 2006 which led to him missing the remaining games of the season.
It was in the 2006-2007 season that Messi established himself as one of the best players in the world, but he also suffered a number of new injuries, including a metatarsal fracture in November 2006, which made it impossible for him to play for three months.
He was 20 when Ronaldinho lost form, making Messi the new star of the club; the Spanish media nicknamed him ‘Messiah’. Barcelona had two unsuccessful seasons prior to 2008-2009, when they won Copa del Rey, La Liga and the Champions League.
Messi was 22 when he won his first Ballon d’Or on 19 December 2009, while he was also named FIFA World Player of the Year; the following year saw him win another Ballon d’Or, as well as in 2011 and 2012, when he became the only player in the history of the sport to win it four times.
Messi suffered a hamstring strain on 2 April 2013, which affected his performance during the remainder of the year, and led him to change his long-time personal physiotherapist.
Six years after their first treble, Barcelona succeeded at winning the Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey again in the 2014-2015 season; Messi won his fourth Golden Boot for the 2016-2017 season, and his fifth for the 2017-2018 season.
Messi and Barcelona won their 10th La Liga title in the following season, with Messi also winning his sixth Golden Boot; the 2019-2020 season saw him win his sixth Ballon d’Or.
