From a kid playing on the streets of his little hometown in Argentina to the greatest player in the world, scoring goals in Champions league finals and everything in between, Leo Messi has done it all.
Recently, he scored his 500th goal for Barcelona in El Classico and became the all-time top goal scorer in La Liga. Needless to say, there would be many players dying for his shirt, in a few instances, some even asked him to swap shirts during half time!
But Messi is someone who never asks to swap shirts, if someone asks him for his shirt, he does, but he never goes ahead and asks players for their shirts. Barring this one time when of all the teams, he asked a Real Madrid player to swap shirts with.
The team scored a spectacular dramatic 3-2 win over Real Madrid.
We later on, came to know what his celebration actually meant.
Messi did get a yellow card for the celebration which was least of his worries.
Can we blame them? He's the greatest footballer ever and even we'd die for his match worn shirt.
Even NBA's best ever shooter is a huge fan of Football's greatest ever player.
"I am not one to ask to swap shirts," Messi said told Spanish magazine Invictos.
"If not and there is someone else that asks me, I will swap it with them. If not, I do not look and do not ask."
Only someone as great as Zizou can force Leo Messi to ask for his shirt.
