The trailer for Messi: the Movie has arrived and features cameos from footballing royalty such as Johan Cruyff, Andres Iniesta and Johan Neeskens.
The film, brought to our attention by World Soccer Talk, is a docudrama, part film and part documentary, based on Messi’s rise to the top.
You don’t need to be introduced to the story, knowing it as well as the back of your hand, but by now it is the stuff of legend.
Messi needed treatment for his stunted growth and Barcelona offered it to him and perhaps saved the world from being denied the talents of one of the greatest players of all time.
