Kanye West recognised his talent, giving Messi a shout out during a listening party for his new album, Donda. He rapped: “I talk to God every day, he’s my bestie. They’re playing soccer in my backyard, I think I see Messi.”
Lionel Messi is the name on everybody’s lips right now. The Argentine led his country to their first major title since 1993 earlier in the summer when Argentina beat Brazil in the final of the Copa America, and then sensationally left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
