Sports

Lionel Messi By Mar Vila

Lionel Andrés Messi was born in June the 24th 1987 in Rosario, Argentina. At the age of five, Messi started playing football for Grandoli, a local club coached by his father Jorge. When he was 11, he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. A club called River Plate showed interest in Messi's progress, but did not have enough money to pay for the treatment. Carles Rexach, the sporting director of Barcelona, had seen the talent of Messi , and Leo’s father and Carles Rexach signed a contract in a table napkin. Barcelona signed him after watching him play, offering to pay the medical expenses if he traveled to Barcelona. His debut was against Espanyol on 16 October 2004 being 17 years old. He was very young, but with his talent, all the people in Barça fell in love with him. There are comparisons with Diego Armando Maradona. People say that Maradona is the best football player that has never existed, but now, Messi is proving that he is better than Maradona. They move the ball the same way. On 18 April 2007, he scored two goals during the Copa del Rey semi-final against Getafe, one of which was very similar to Maradona's famous goal against England at the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico. In a conference after the game, Messi’s team-mate Deco said: "It was the best goal I have ever seen in my life."


Over the years Messi improved, and he became the best football player in the world. On 1 December 2009, Messi was named winner of the 2009 Ballon d'Or, beating Cristiano Ronaldo by a huge difference of 473 to 233. Afterwards, France Football magazine published some words on Messi, saying: "I dedicate it to my family. They were always there when I needed them and sometimes felt even stronger emotions than me." On 19 December, Messi scored the winning goal in the final match of the 2009 FIFA Club World Cup against Estudiantes in Abu Dhabi. Two days later, he was given the FIFA World Player of the Year , beating Cristiano Ronaldo, Xavi, Kaká and Andrés Iniesta . Messi has played 199 games with Barça and has scored 114 goals. For Argentina he has scored 26 goals. The best season in Barça was the 2008-2009 season. Barça won everything possible, and individually too. Also, Barça defeated his nemesis, Real Madrid, in their own stadium, Santiago Bernabeu, with a score of 2-6. It was a special moment for Messi, because he scored two goals.
