There’s a woman behind every successful man and Messi’s life is one of them

Lionel Messi is one of the greatest player in football history. Besides that, a woman had helped him a lot in becoming one of the best player in the world.

Messi’s grandmother was the one who helped him to do so. When Messi was 4, his grandma, Celia Oliveira Cuccittini brought him his first pair of football shoes. She was the only woman who wanted to see Messi becoming a great player. Sadly his grandma died in 1998 when Messi was 10.

Grandma took Messi to his first training session at Grandoli local football club, motivating him with her words, “One day, you will be the best football player in the world”.

Not only this, grandma also made the training coach to include Messi in his first ever football squad. So Messi always raise his hands towards the heaven and look towards the same to give a tribute to his grandma or we should say that his every goal is dedicated to his grandma.
