he prolific attacker revealed that he always dreamt of playing the beautiful sport as a professional. He added that he is amazed by the fact that this dream came true and claimed that it is all due to Barcelona he is playing football at this level today.
Hailing from humble origins, the left-footed footballer could only imagine playing for a world famous football club.
The player was often scouted in his native town of Rosario, and his talent was indeed recognized at a very young age. However, a hormonal growth problem constrained Messi from being picked by any club.
In these circumstances, Barca was the club that took the risk of signing the youngster.

In return, Messi grew up to become one of the finest players ever to grace the footballing pitch. Not only is he an outstanding athlete, but also an impressive individual.

While talking to reporters, the 24-year-old was quoted as saying:
"Since I was three or four years old, I dreamt of becoming a footballer. I was walking around with a football and all I wanted was to play. My only thought was to become a footballer, I did not think about doing anything else. If I could not have become
one, I actually do not know what I would be today.”
"This was something very beautiful, because they allowed me to realise my dream."
Things seem to be getting better and better for the Ballon d’Or winner as he recently announced that he is about to become a father.
