Messi: More than a Superstar 2016 updated Edition by Luca Caioli
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.
This is an updated edition of Luca Caioli’s best-selling biography, including the dramatic 2013/14 season and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, in which Lionel Messi’s match-winning performances finally began to win over his harshest critics—his fellow countrymen.
Messi is a revealing portrait of soccer’s most unassuming superstar with numerous exclusive testimonies to tell Messi’s story, including an interview with the man himself. It charts his successful battle to overcome a career-threatening growth hormone deficiency, following which he has proceeded to win almost every award and trophy, including an unprecedented four FIFA Ballons d’Or, the Oscar of world soccer.
