A name that was picked out specifically because of the letter I which he changed to an “e.” The story could have been told in Italian, but it wasn’t meant to be. Also, the name of a child in a Rosario club that isn’t Newell’s, how he stopped throwing up during games, and what musical instrument he is the best at. Here are the five things about Lionel Messi that most people don’t know.
Leonel, renamed in Spain
When he was born, he was given the unusual name Lionel as a tribute to Lionel Lionel, whose song “Say you, say me” was played over and over again in 1986. Jorge’s father wrote down the birth of his third child in the Rosario civil registry. We already knew that, so there’s nothing new here. But when did Lio turn into Leo? It happened when he arrived in Barcelona. There, he lost his original name, which on paper still starts with an I but in everyday life, it changed to an “e.” On the old continent, people started calling him Leonel, and the apocope of Leo was set up. He used this as his signature and personal brand. Lionel was the first to agree to it.
He was able to revolutionize Calcium
Before Barcelona took over the young player’s family, Como of the Italian Soccer League was close to signing him because of how well he had been playing. The club from the north of the country was in Serie A at the time and tried Messi out in 1999. It made sense that they would want to sign the promise. But they didn’t pay for the treatment or the family’s move. He finally turned down the offer, so his bet went to Barcelona. “It makes you want to eat your hands when you watch it now. He’s like having one half of a team. If we had signed him, we would have paid off our debts for the next 30 years, said Enrico Preziosi, who was the club’s president at the time. He said this a long time ago.
Flowers not to vomit
There was a time when Messi would often throw up on the side of the field without trying to cover it up. Yes, he was often like that before the game or in some other part of the stadium in 2014, whether he was wearing Argentina or Barcelona jersey. It wasn’t something like an upset stomach, a virus, or a breakdown. It was partly because of how she felt, and it was also the result of what she ate. He went to a doctor in Italy, started eating healthy foods that weren’t overly processed and cut out soft drinks, foods made with flour, pork, beef, eggs, shellfish, and many types of dairy. He also took Bach flower remedies to help his mind and body work together.
Champion, with Central Córdoba
He was eight years old in 1995. Messi wanted to play ball all day, just like he does now. He was a junior at Newell’s, but the tournament wasn’t happening at the time. Leprosy didn’t play in a regional championship, so Central Córdoba de Rosario had a good idea to write down the boy who had been talked about a lot since he played for his first club, Abanderado Grandoli. So, he lifted one of his first trophies with the 10 on his back and made his mark. Only Newell’s, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, and Charra can say that Lio wore their shirt.
Play it again, Leo
Antonela put the picture of herself on her Instagram. When they were dating and didn’t have any kids. They look like Leo’s first steps on the guitar, as he watches a LA major get ready to strum with his thumb. In other posts, he showed three more guitars, none of which were electric. This shows that he still likes six-string guitars. How good will he be as a football player?
