Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of our time: a magician with uncanny ability to beat defenders, find space and score goals. At the peak of his powers during Barcelona’s 2015 treble win – a decade on from his first Spanish title – the four-time Ballon d’Or winner has again eclipsed his rivals and proved emphatically that he has no intention of surrendering his crown just yet.
Messi is Luca Caioli’s classic portrait of modern football’s star turn, now fully updated to include all the action from 2014/15. Featuring exclusive testimony from those who know him best, including coaches, teammates and even Messi himself, it offers an unrivalled behind-the-scenes look at the life of a football superstar.
Luca Caioli is the bestselling author of Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and Suarez. A renowned Italian sports journalist, he lives in Spain corresponding for SKY Italia and Corriere della Sera.
