Although your question has some weird bits, let me just answer it any way.

Lionel Messi is an Argentinian Soccer player. He's considered to be the direct successor of Diego Maradona and has many times emulated feats similar to what Maradona did already. He's known to be the world's finest football player. In fact he is called the Complete footballer. He has been awarded the Best footballer award consecutively for the third year running. He started playing soccer at a very young age and has spent immense amount of time in practicing the game and achieving perfection. According to stats he started playing at the tender age of 5 coached by his father. He later moved on to Spain as he had relatives there and then was spotted by the Barcalona scout team and has been at Barca since then. He is now second only to Alvarez in terms of the highest number of goals scored for Barca.

Hello friend,

You seem to be aptly mesmerized by Messi. Lionel Messi is currently the highest paid football player. Messi is very agile and has a very fast and wonderful style of dribbling the ball from as long as midfield. Even the great Argentine footballer Diego Maradona considers his style of play very similar to his. Although, he started playing football very early in childhood, he played his first official game in 1995, at the age of 8 years for Newell's Old Boys team in his home town of Rosario. At the age of 16 years, he made his debut for football club Barcelona. His career with national team has not been as illustrious as club career. As an interesting piece of fact, his debut with the national team playing against Hungary, he entered the game in the 18th minute of the second half, and 47 seconds later was sent off !
