Messi's 30th birthday: The great man's final stage 1

Those who have seen the movie Logan, or Days of future past in the X-Men film series, will probably feel nostalgic when one of the biggest mutants in world football history is on the final journey of his career.

In spring 2005, Barcelona played Albacete at Camp Nou.

Messi’s first goal at Barca

After coming on to replace Samuel Eto’o – the only scorer until then, it took Messi only 107 seconds to put the ball into the net of¬†Albacete.

Just 18 seconds before the end of the second half, Messi reclaimed that goal.

And Messi became the real King.

Also in this traditional room, Barca has reserved a separate area for Messi, where his shirt, Golden Ball and Golden Shoe are displayed.

In a recent article on ESPN, titled: `A world without Messi: we will no longer have the opportunity to follow the iconic number 10`, journalist Chris Jones pointed out clear changes in Messi.

Messi – one of the biggest mutants in world football history.

Messi has changed a lot after all these years.

But the present must one day become the past.

Di Stefano has hung up his boots.

This is not only Messi’s own crisis, but also his whole family’s.

Messi once said he didn’t like being a coach, because he’s not the type of person who likes to talk a lot.

Thiago was born on the 7th floor of the maternity hospital in Barcelona.

When he was young, Messi often hugged the ball to bed, went to school together, and was inseparably attached like childhood love.

`Thiago is number one, then comes football,` Messi said on ESPN, something most thought he would never say.

And these days, when a match ends, Messi doesn’t have too many concerns about what he did and didn’t do, but just the smile of a child.
