Ronaldinho, Newell’s Old Boys and more wish Leo Messi a Happy 29th Birthday [Twitter & Instagram]
Today is Leo Messi’s birthday, as the Argentine Barcelona man turns 29.
The five-time Ballon D’Or winner has received some birthday wishes from former Barcelona teammates Ronaldinho and Carles Puyol, as well as from Futbol Club Barcelona.
Messi also received birthday wishes from Newell’s Old Boys, the Rosario club where he started out, before moving to Barcelona as a young teenager.
Given how universally loved Messi generally is by teammates, you’d probably have expected from birthday wishes for him on social media, but then again his birthday hasn’t fallen on the best day this year.
With all the distraction surrounding Brexit, as well as the two huge continental tournaments, perhaps his teammates were too preoccupied to tweet him a happy birthday.
