Lionel Messi is one of the most important players in soccer history. He has been shining on the field for nearly two decades, when he made his debut with Barcelona in 2004. Since then he has enamored fans around the world with his talent, goals, dribbling and assists, as well as being part of unforgettable teams such as Pep Guardiola's Barcelona and Lionel Scaloni's Argentina National Team.

Being in the elite of world soccer for so many years has also made him a celebrity. Leo is one of the most famous people on the planet, people from all countries know and admire him, and he is usually honored everywhere he goes. But despite all this, one thing has never changed for him and that is his way of speaking. At 36 years old, despite having lived most of his life outside Argentina, he maintains his characteristic Rosario accent, his hometown, and has hardly adopted expressions from Spain.

And something similar has happened since his arrival in the United States. In July 2023 he joined Inter Miami and quickly became the team's leader and star, but in one respect he has yet to adapt to his new club: the language. In more than six months there, he has never spoken publicly in English and his own teammates admit they have rarely heard him utter words in any language other than Spanish.

However, his wife Antonela Roccuzzo seems to have chosen a completely different path. According to Paparazzi, she has taken advantage of her years away from Argentina accompanying Leo to study the local languages and now masters, in addition to Spanish, three others.

Which languages does she know?

For more than 10 years Antonela Roccuzzo lived with Lionel Messi in Barcelona, while he was the star of Los Blaugranas, and so she learned to speak Catalan. When he left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, his wife took advantage of the two years there to study French. And now, in the United States, she is even more comfortable, since she has been speaking English since she was very young.
