Lionel Messi is in the news almost every week. If he wins, surely because he scored a goal, if he loses, because a new failure is consummated. It may be because he broke a new record, or a simple post on one of his official accounts on his social networks. However, what few know about him is how tall he is, one of the reasons that complicated his career in formative years.
The Argentine footballer played his entire career at Barcelona. In fact, in recent weeks he became the player with the most matches in the club's history. However, few thought that he would reach this stage, given his short stature, which is why many believed that he would never become a professional footballer.
Legend has it that Lionel Messi was ignored in both River Plate and Boca Juniors, the two greatest teams in his native Argentina. However, Barcelona bet on what they believed would be one of the greatest promises of the sport. Thus, he undertook an expensive treatment, which allowed him to reach his height today: 1.70 m (170 cm). Without a doubt, the bet with the best result in the history of the Catalan team.
