The Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi said on Sunday that the greatest sacrifice that he has had to do as an athlete was leaving Rosario and move to Barcelona at the age of 13.
The FC Barcelona star made an advertising spot for the Gillette Company where he participated with the Swiss tennis player Roger Federer, and answered several questions to the press.
“Leave it all in Rosario, part of my family, my friends, my people… start a life practically from scratch because I had nothing in Barcelona,” said ‘ the flea’ in statements collected by the Spanish newspaper Sport.
“I do not regret one bit. I would do it again. I came in search of my dream”, stressed the Argentine player.
