With a sibling who is arguably the Greatest of All Time in football and a 6-time Ballon d'Or winner, it is understandable to be obscure, even when you're a millionaire of yourself. This is the case of Rodrigo Messi, the elder brother of Paris Saint-Germain's Lionel Messi. Rodrigo is the first of 4 children of a steel factory manager father, Jorge Messi and manufacturing workshop mother, Celia Cuccittini.
Born on February 10, 1980, in Argentina, the 41-year-old works with his superstar brother to manage his schedule and publicity. With the busy schedule and scores of news about Lionel Messi, this certainly keeps him busy but he sets out time to build a career in the sports industry also. He is an adviser to professional football players, notably to the Barcelona duo of Ansu Fati and Konrad de la Fuente. He provides services ranging from representation, to contract negotiation and publicity to his clients.
Rodrigo Messi is also successful with an average net worth between $1m - $5m. He is said to have made most of his wealth from working with Lionel Messi as a manager and also from representing other professional players. Rodrigo is credited with instilling the love of football into Lionel Messi and his other brother, Matias Messi, from an early age. Rodrigo would always play football with Lionel Messi and Matias, thus helping Lionel Messi's development in football.
Despite having over 200,000 followers on Instagram, Rodrigo Messi can be a very private person. He is also unmarried and it is unclear if he is dating. Though, no one has seen him with any lady in a romantic way in public. The 41-year-old doesn't have any children yet but he is a close uncle to Mateo, Thiago and Ciro Messi. He is close to his other siblings, Matias Messi and Maria Sol Messi.
