Early Life


Born on June 24, 1987, in Rosario, Argentina, soccer player Lionel Messi moved to Spain at the age of 13, after the FC Barcelona club agreed to pay for hormone deficiency treatments. They didn't want him another team in Argentina so he had so move to Barcelona they give him the opportunity to play there. So he could make it to professional. But at the same they didn't want because he had some vomit problems.


In his 10 years and counting for Barcelona, Messi has amassed six La Ligas, two Copas del Rey, five Supercopas de EspaƱa, three UEFA Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups. He holds the Guinness World Records title for the most goals in a year 91 goals in 2012. Messi won 4 gold balls to because hehas being the best soccer player in the world. In my opinion theres no other player the plays like him. He battles with the likes of Pele, Maradona and Cristiano Ronaldo to the title of the greatest football player ever.


  • He is a great soccer player because he has won 4 gold balls.
  • He is a good father because his going taking care of there family he does everything for them.
  • He is a hard worker because his going trying to do the best he can.


You have to fight to reach your dreams. You have to sacrifice and work hard for it.


Messi has influenced football because he is the best soccer player in the world. He is always talking to other kids so they can achieve their goals. He talks to cancer patients so they don't give up. Argentinian captain Lionel Messi plays multiple positions, which means he can influence games. Messi has won 4 gold balls because they choose him like the best in the world over Cristiano Ronaldo, who for other people, is the best in the world too.


I chose Messi because he is an inspiration for me, and not just for me, but for all the people and the world. Messi is a great father, and he is always trying to do the best for them. He is the best because he's always trying to win the games, he is always trying to make his teammates better too, and he is the greatest soccer player in the world.
