MESSI SKILLS

His full name is Luis Lionel Andres Messi.

Messi was born on June 24, 1987 in Rosario, Argentina.

Messi shares his birthplace with the Argentinian revolutionary Che Guevera.

His family is of middle-class Italian origin. His father, Jorge, was a steelworker, and he also coached the local youth football team.

Messi was not very healthy and nutritious in his childhood days like the other boys around. He was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency which was stopping his normal growth rate at a tender age of 11. His parents could not afford his treatment, which was $900 a month.



At the age of 17, he made his league debut against RCD Espanyol and became the third youngest person ever to play on Barcelona. At that time he was also the youngest player to ever score for Barcelona.

Messi's first contract with Barcelona was detailed out on a paper napkin! FC Barcelona sporting director Carles Rexach was so impressed with Messi's skills that he wanted to make a contract immediately and there was no paper available at that time.

Barcelona was so impressed with Messi's footskills that they offered to pay his medical bills and move the family to Spain just to sign him when he was 13. That probably explains why the contract was first signed on a napkin.
During the 2005-2006 season, Messi began being paid as a first team member.

Messi holds two passports - Argentina's and Spain's. He became a Spanish citizen in September 2005.

Lionel Messi also made his debut in the Spanish First Division league. Out of his seventeen League appearances he scored six goals. He scored one goal in six for the Champions League.

His 2005 international debut lasted 47 seconds when he received a red card after coming on as a substitute.
He won an Olympic gold medal, along with the Argentinian football team, at the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing.

Messi inherited the No. 10 Barca jersey from another great footballer Ronaldinho in the summer of 2008.

In 2009, he won his first Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards. He followed this up by winning the inaugural FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010, and then again in 2011 and 2012.

Messi has won six La Ligas, two Copas del Rey, five Supercopas de España, three UEFA Champions Leagues, two UEFA Super Cups and two Club World Cups.

Along with England's Vivian Woodward (who accomplished the feat in the early 1900s), Messi is the only player to have scored 25 goals in a calendar year during international competition with both his club and his country.

He was offered a place in the national team by Spain which he did not accept.

Messi is the sixth youngest soccer player to score a goal in a World Cup games.

One of Lionel's nicknames is "The Flea" due to his speed and agility.
