Lionel Andrés “Leo” Messi was born 24 June 1987. He is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona and the Argentina national team. Born and raised in central Argentina, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency as a child. At age 13, he relocated to Spain to join Barcelona, who were willing to pay for his medical treatment. After an unusually fast progression through Barcelona’s youth academy, Messi made his first team debut aged 16 in November 2003. Although injury-prone during his early years with the first team, he established himself as an integral player for the club within the next four years, finishing 2007 as a finalist for both the Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year award, a feat he repeated the following year. He played his first uninterrupted campaign in 2008–09, during which Barcelona achieved the first treble in Spanish football. At 22 years old, Messi won the 2009 Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year award by record voting margins.
