I’m playing football because of my Grandmother- Lionel Messi opens up on what kept pushing him

1 min

Lionel Messi’s Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 in Copa America final to secure the national team’s first title in 28 years and the superstar’s first major international trophy.

When the match ended, a tearful Messi was thrown into the air by some of his joyous teammates.

As a child, ‘Leo’ Messi found his greatest admirer and closest aide in his grandma, Celia who accompanied him to all his games and is his inspiration. By age 10, he went on to create and break many records in the history of the game.

I am playing football because of my grandmother. Without her efforts no one would have ever known about Lionel Messi. Thanks to FC Barcelona for accepting me, I was a 13 year old, hopeless and sick.

Barcelona treated me with the best medication. And today I always give everything I have got to pay them back. No one would understand, but only I can understand. Yes I have money, but I can still cry every day because my life was a nightmare.
