“I did nothing to become World’s Best Player, it’s a gift from God” – Lionel Messi

Football superstar Lionel Messi, the iconic figure of Inter Miami and the Argentine national team, has opened up on the reason behind his successful football career.

The 37-year-old football legend, currently with Argentina at the Copa América in the United States, shared his perspective on the origins of his exceptional talent.

Reflecting on his journey during an interview with podcaster Juan Pablo Varsky, Messi shared that he believes his extraordinary talent is a gift bestowed upon him by God.

“It’s very clear to me that I was born like this because God chose me. It was a gift he gave me.” he told podcaster Juan Pablo Varsky

“I was always different. People came to watch me. I didn’t realize it, but I only began to understand that as I grew older.

“Of course, I tried to take advantage of it [talent], I tried to squeeze the most out of it, but the truth is, I did nothing to become the player that I already was when I was little.”

Yes, Leo’s got a gift—one in a billion, no doubt. But he’s not giving himself enough credit because he worked just as hard as any other footballer to become what he is today—the best player in the world.
