Lionel Messi is a mesmerising talent who has continued to astound the world of football ever since assuming his role at the heart of a star-studded Barcelona side in 2004. Overcoming a career-threatening growth hormone deficiency, he has won almost everything there is to win, including an unprecedented four FIFA Ballons d'Or.Luca Caioli draws on numerous exclusive testimonies to tell Messi's story, including his parents and extended family, his coaches, those who have played alongside him and even Messi himself. Messi is a revealing portrait of football's most unassuming superstar. Updated to include the 2014/15 season as he and his Barcelona teammates sought to fight their way back to the forefront of Spanish football following the successes of Madrid's two biggest sides, Atletico and Real, the season before.
Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of our time: a magician with uncanny ability to beat defenders, find space and score goals. At the peak of his powers during Barcelona's 2015 treble win - a decade on from his first Spanish title - the four-time Ballon d'Or winner has again eclipsed his rivals and proved emphatically that he has no intention of surrendering his crown just yet. Messi is Luca Caioli's classic portrait of modern football's star turn, now fully updated to include all the action from 2014/15. Featuring exclusive testimony from those who know him best, including coaches, teammates and even Messi himself, it offers an unrivalled behind-the-scenes look at the life of a football superstar
