Messi Surprises A Fan

Lionel Messi is currently in Washington DC, ahead of Argentina’s international friendly against El Salvador, and took the time out of his busy schedule to meet some American Basketball players and surprise one of his biggest fans.

Messi’s latest boots go by the name of ‘Pibe de Barr10’ which directly translates ‘kid from the neighbourhood’, and it was these new boots that Messi and his team surprised the fan with!

They found the fan, Brian Rossi, online and decided to award him with a fresh pair of boots. Rossi is also coincidentally a fan of Messi’s first club, Newell’s Old Boys, and lives in Messi’s hometown, Rosario.

 

Brian’s new kicks were revealed in a post on Messi’s Facebook page, shared to over 75 million people, and on his twitter feed, giving the kid from his neighbourhood a sweet taste of stardom – incredible!

What do you think of Messi’s kind gesture?
