He is highly recognized as a true sportsman due to his determination and motivation towards life as well as his game. He was diagnosed with a hormone deficiency as a child but since then has worked his way up the ladder to become one of the finest soccer players Argentina has ever produced. He is indeed a true inspiration for the world. Messi has already won the FIFA Ballon d’Or a staggering 5 times, a record! And not to forget he is still going strong.

“I always want more,Whether it’s a goal,Or winning a game,I’m never satisfied”.
“I am a normal person.I have the same life as any human being.When I finish playing,Doing my work,I have my family, my friends,And I live like any other person”.
3.ON BEING BETTER
“I’m never satisfied.
I always push my limits
And I always try to get better every day”.
“To be honest, I never realized it.
I never really thought that I was going to be really good or not.
I just wanted to make my dream come true”.
My family and my friends would tell me
[That I was better than the other kids].
I wasn’t playing football than just to be the best,
I just wanted to have fun.
“I think my desire to always get better,
[is a trait that accounts for my success],
To always want more,
To always be my top critic,
And accepting the good and the bad”.
“I want to be world champion,
But not to change the perception of others towards me
Or to achieve greatness like they say,
To reach the goal with my national team
And to add a world cup to my list of titles”.
“I became a father which is a big change.
It makes you see things differently.Right now,
First and foremost is my son”.
“To come home and see my son,
It’s a big joy that makes you forget all of your worries.
It’s changed who I am”.
“I’ve grown a lot in football terms,
A lot of things have happened to me,
Good and bad,
Which helped me grow as a person and professionally”.
