Being called Lionel Messi can be a burden for any soccer player, but this 18-year-old from Newells Old Boys of Argentina says he is not sorry to have that last name; it is more an honor to wear it. Lionel Messi left his same team and that is why it is exciting to see him when he carries the ball because of his resemblance to Lionel himself.
From Argentina they say that Joaquin Messi has a resemblance to Lionel Messi when he carries the ball and goes towards the goal. The 18-year-old young player promises to be one of the future stars of Argentine soccer, but that may not last long as several clubs in Europe are already looking for him. It is a matter of time to see it there.
When he carries the ball at his feet, Joaquin Messi does it at great speed and several people who saw the two Messi play in the Newells Old Boys youth teams say that their movements are very similar. At the Argentine club they are very excited to have the new Messi on their team.
In Argentina they still have the dream that Lionel Messi will ever come back to play for even one season in the club of his loves and that is why they try to convince him every time he seems to be leaving FC Barcelona. Although it is a dream for the future, for now they will have to settle for having the new Messi, but named Joaquin.
