About The Book

In Messi: The Inside Story Of The Boy Who Became A Legend, author Luca Caioli gives us an incredible insight into the life of this living football legend. Since a long time, Diego Maradona, the golden boy's shadow has loomed large over the world of football. In 2007, this legendary Argentine decided that Lionel Messi would be his successor to the well-known No. 10 shirt.

No one could have been sure whether the potential would be lived up to. Time and again champions, reporters, even coaches have blundered when it came to choosing the next superstar. This time, though, they got it right because Messi is a European champion and an Olympic gold medallist. Messi: The Inside Story Of The Boy Who Became a Legend tells the story of Lionel Messi, the most naturally gifted footballer in today's time and hero to millions of fans globally.

At the young age of 22, this young man shows a rare maturity and is still a shy boy who simply describes his Maradona moment as “I saw a gap and I went for it”. Underneath the layers of footballing brilliance, Messi is disarmingly humble at heart and prefers homemade cookies to branded perfumes. Author Luca Caioli draws his information from heartfelt testimonies by people who have known, loved and shaped the sporting god that is Messi. Messi's parents, Celia and Jorge, his brother, aunts, uncles and his old coaches have all contributed to our understanding of this living legend. In conclusion, Messi himself sums up his life thus far.

The 2nd revised edition of this book was published by Corinthian in 2012 and is available as a paperback.
