Lionel Messi explains in interview why he ‘DOES NOT LIKE’ being called GOD by fans

September 27, 2023

Lionel Messi, who is frequently referred to as “God” because of his supernatural powers on the pitch, dislikes the comparison.

In reality, during a lengthy interview with the Catalan daily RAC1, Messi discussed the issue and stated the following:

“I’m not worried by it, but it’s true that I don’t like it.”

“It’s nice to be praised because people are being respectful. They don’t say it with any ill intent, but actually, with the complete opposite. But I think it’s very exaggerated to call me that.”

Lionel Messi, who joined MLS side Inter Miami this summer, gets called ‘the god of football’ very often. And his son Matteo might end up jumping on the bandwagon.

“Because of my sons, the age they have, they hear things and they copy them. My son, Mateo, calls me ‘Leo Messi,” [he’ll say,] ‘let’s go Leo Messi!'”
