Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi’s full name is Lionel Andrés Messi Cuccittini. He was born on the 24th  of June 1987. His birth was in Argentina, Rosario. He is now at the age of 27. His height is 1.70 and his playing position is Forward or Midfielder he also serves as a captain for Argentina.  His parents names are Celia María Cuccittini and Jorge Horácio. He has 3 siblings who are Rodrigo(Brother), Matías(Brother) and María Sol(Sister). His partner is Antonella Roccuzzo and has one child which is Thiago Messi.

Lionel Messi is a professional football player for the Spanish club FC Barcelona and Argentina national team. When Lionel Messi was a young boy his father and mother had to work very hard his father was a factory steel worker and his mother was a part time cleaner. 

At the age of five that was when Lionel Messi started playing football he played for Grandoli which was a club coached by his Father. Lionel Messi has his own style of playing football which has been compared to a famous footballer “Diego Maradona” because of their similar playing style. This gives Lionel Messi a lower centre of gravity than most players. His whole body can keep control of the ball and dribble at his own pace. With his incredible dribbling skills he is able to undertake dribbling runs against the goal. Lionel Messi established in 2007 the Leo Messi Foundation and on March 2013 he had donated $600,000 to a children’s hospital. How nice and kind to do such a thing like that because he donated a lot of money to help those children who really need that money! 

Lionel has skills that I have never seen before! He can control the ball very well. He can play his positions like an expert because he is an expert! Lionel Messi has skills that could impress anyone and could inspire new football players. I encourage everyone to research Lionel Messi or watch his games and you will see how much of an expert he really is.
