The Barca Superstar has undoubtedly written his name in golden words in the history of football. Lionel Messi has not only broken innumerable records set by the past footballers but also made unprecedented records. One of his recent accolades includes winning the Ballon d’Or for the 5th time, 4 of which were won consecutively. From his classic moves to extra-ordinary goals, Messi is a legend in himself.
The most astonishing thing in Messi’s journey to stardom is that he was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency due to which his height suffered. At the tender age of 17, this football icon started playing professional football and got nominated for the two most eminent football awards: Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year. Before celebrating his 23rd birthday, Messi had already won his first Ballon d’Or.
He was the first ever player to have won 3 European Golden Shoes. The facts and achievements about this one-of-a-kind talented football player are detailed in the infographic which was originally posted by Ticketsmove.
