Lionel Messi celebrates his 34th birthday. During these years, he lived a life full of achievements, brilliance and charm, although his childhood illness almost deprived him of all that.
He carried a lot of hope in his heart when he boarded the plane from Rosario to Barcelona. He was living suffering in the alleys of Argentina. He smiles when he hugs his ball, and dances with it during the day. In the evening, he remembers that he has problems growing. Although, it did not stop. He believed in the gift of God and the talent he carried within him, which transformed him from “Little Leo” to Lionel Messi; Best player in the world 6 times. On this day (June 24), Messi was born, who turned 34 years old.
“When I was eight, I had stunted growth, and my parents would give me needles. When I was 12, I learned to do it myself,” Messi says.
He adds, “Every evening I was injected with growth hormone. At first, it was in one leg, before the operation was switched to the other leg. The needle was small. So, I didn’t feel anything. For me, the whole process was routine, and I was I had to, and I did.”
After treatment for years of “deficiency” disease, Messi joined Barcelona’s academy “La Masia” in the year 2000, coming from the Argentine team “Newell’s Old Boys”. The Catalan team decided to take care of the player and treat him from his illness. From that moment on, Messi opened a new page in his football career.
