“It’s a gift from God, I did nothing to become the World’s Best Player” Lionel Messi


Lionel Messi, the famous football player from Inter Miami and Argentina, talked about what he thinks is the reason for his successful career.

The 37-year-old star, now playing for Argentina in the Copa América in the United States, discussed the beginnings of his amazing skills.

In a conversation with podcaster Juan Pablo Varsky, Messi mentioned that he sees his incredible talent as a special gift from God.

“It’s very clear to me that I was born like this because God chose me. It was a gift he gave me.” he told podcaster Juan Pablo Varsky

“I was always different. People came to watch me. I didn’t realize it, but I only began to understand that as I grew older.

“Of course, I tried to take advantage of it [talent], I tried to squeeze the most out of it, but the truth is, I did nothing to become the player that I already was when I was little.”

Yes, Leo’s got a gift—one in a billion, no doubt. But he’s not giving himself enough credit because he worked just as hard as any other footballer to become what he is today—the best player in the world.
