I’m going to talk about my favourite football player, his name is Lionel Andrés Messi, but he is better known as Leo Messi. Leo Messi was born on 24th June 1987 in Rosario, Argentina. When he was a child, he had growth problems. FC Barcelona decided to invest in him the money he needed to pay for the treatment  and he came to live in Barcelona. He grew in the lower teams of  FC Barcelona and he went up categories until he arrived at the first team.

Messi started to play with the first team in 2003 when he was 16 years old, but his official  début was in 2004, when he was 17 years old.  So far, Messi has won a lot of prizes both individual and with his team. These are some of them:

Individual. He has got 3 FIFA World Player and more other prize.

Team. He has won 5 prizes of Spanish League, 5 of Spain’s Super Cup, 1 King’s Cup,  3 Champions League, one gold medal at the Olimpic Games, and some other prizes.

In my opinion, Lionel Andrés Messi is the best football player in the world at the moment.

You can get more information at Barça’s site or Leo’s official site.
