 • Recently footballer Lionel Messi broke Pelé’s record for most goals scored for a club
 Lionel Messi has become such a big name in the sports world that he also knows people who are not interested in sports.  This ‘goal machine’ recently demolished the record for the highest goals scored for a club by celebrity player Pelé when he scored the 644th goal for FC Barcelona.  They have broken many such records.
 Lionel was born on 24 June 1987 in Rosario, Central Argentina.  Not everything was decorated on the plate for this third child of the family.  Father George Messi worked in a steel factory and mother Celia was a part time cleaner.  The gardener’s home was not well, but both knew very well how to raise children.
 When George found that Lionel played well, he was determined to help Leo develop the talent.  Leo’s trend was naturally for the sport.  His two elder brothers and cousins ​​used to go to football every day, Leo also joined them.  Since Liao was very young, his brothers hesitated to feed him.
 His grandmother was always with Leo.  Elder brothers used to feed them on the insistence of grandmother.  Dadi insisted on getting a pair of shoes from his mother when he saw the game of Leo. At the age of four, Leo joined the local club Grandoli, where his father coached him.  Grandma used to go to the club every day to watch him play.  Gradually football for Liao became like breathing for the body.
 When he was eight years old, he became a part of the famous club ‘Newell Old Boys’.  His dream of becoming a professional footballer was now shining in his eyes.  Grandma was no more when she was ten.  Leo suffered the most.  He did not touch football for weeks.  He started going to the club at the behest of his father.
 Lio was trying to recover from the sadness of Grandma’s departure that at the age of 11, another problem came to light.  His age was increasing but he was not growing tall.  Concerned parents sought medical advice, and it was found that Leo had a growth hormone deficiency.

 Meaning that if they did not get special treatment, they would not be able to grow.  The treatment was to last for three years and cost over $ 1000 each month.  The father, unable to bear the cost of treatment, sought help from the club, but the help was insufficient.  Clubs wanted Leo but were unable to afford him.  Then an offer came from Spain.
 When the 13-year-old Leo came to the ears of FC Barcelona’s Technical Director Carles Rexach, he made an offer to the Messi family.  The offer was that he himself would watch Lionel’s game, if Leo passed, the club would bear the cost of treatment but he would have to shift to Barcelona.
 The family immediately arrived there.  Leo arrived to prove himself in the ‘FC Barcelona Youth Team’.  He did not speak a word to his teammates when he was wearing uniform in the changing room.  The team was also looking at them with surprise at how small they are.  Leo must have spent only two minutes in the field that all the fellow players were in wonder how they play so well!  Coach Carles was so impressed that he got the contract signed on the paper napkin itself.  After this, Liao’s life changed and now he was seeing his dream come true.
 He would practice during the day and inject growth hormones into the feet at night.  By the time he was 14 years old, his treatment was completed and finally he attained a height of 5 feet 7 inches.  At the age of 16, he made his professional debut for Barcelona.  At the age of 18, he joined the team of Argentina and started the process of making records on the basis of his art of scoring goals.
 Describing his journey, Lionel once said, ‘I started early and stayed long, day and night … year after year.  After 17 years 114 days have passed and I have succeeded ‘overnight’.
