Between his time playing for Spain’s FC Barcelona team and his role on the Argentine national team, it’s surprising Lionel Messi has a life off the pitch. Yet, the most popular soccer legend of our time keeps a busy schedule that far exceeds his notable accomplishments on the field. Readers will find all the details of Messi’s life, including his early struggles with a growth hormone deficiency, his intense years of training as a teenager, and his launch into superstardom as a World Cup star. In addition to his career, the text also covers Messi’s family life, multimillion-dollar endorsements, and admirable charity work.
