Argentine football legend Lionel Messi celebrates his thirty-fifth birthday today, Friday, amid a state of passion for what he will present again in his journey that is almost to the end with the round witch.
Argentine legend Lionel Messi, the former Barcelona star and current Paris Saint-Germain seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, is arguably the greatest footballer of all time, from scoring stunning individual goals to providing superb passes in defense.
Over the past 15 years, he has transformed every stone thrown at him into landmarks, creating a legacy that will stand the test of time.
Lionel Messi was born in Rosario and began his football career in 1995 with Newell’s Old Boys club, and played for its junior team, which was known as the “87 machines”, given that all of its players, including Messi, were born in 1987 and suffered only one loss over four years of matches.
After a while, the doctors discovered that the current world football star suffers from a hormone deficiency. Old Boys did not bear the costs of his treatment, which amounted to 900 dollars per month, and it was difficult for his family at the time, so Barcelona agreed to the matter and included the player after he took care of his treatment in Spain.
After that, Lionel Messi began the record journey in the history of Barcelona, where he played with the team in 778 matches in various competitions, during which he scored 672 goals and made 305 goals, and achieved 34 local and continental titles, and he was the backbone of the golden era of Barca over the past two decades.
With Barcelona, Messi won the Spanish League 10 times, the King’s Cup 7 times, and at the same time, the Spanish Super Cup.
Messi and Barcelona won the Champions League 4 times, the European Super 3 times, and the Club World Cup 3 times.
Lionel Messi is considered the only player in the world to win the Ballon d’Or award, as he succeeded in winning the Ballon d’Or title for the years: “2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2019, 2021”.
Messi had signed his first professional contract with Barcelona when he was eighteen years old in 2005 when he started his career inside the “Camp Nou” castle until the end of his career at the Camp Nou castle before the beginning of last season after he moved to Paris Saint-Germain in a free transfer deal.
