Now with an updated cover and new chapter that includes Messi's mega move to Paris Saint-Germain. The only player in history to win SEVEN Ballon d'Or trophies.
Lionel Messi is a legend - Barcelona's star player and the world's best footballer. But when was young, he was so small that his friends called him 'Little Leo' and coaches worried he wasn't big enough. Yet through bravery, talent and hard work, he proved them wrong.
Messi tells the magical story of how the tiniest boy in South America grew up to become the greatest player on earth. Ultimate Football Heroes is a series of biographies telling the life stories of the biggest and best footballers in the world and their incredible journeys from childhood fan to superstar professional player. Written in fast-paced, action-packed style these books are perfect for all the family to collect and share.
