The Argentina international, who recently won the Copa America, sent a video to a man that has chronicled his entire career
The fan, named Hernan, has made a note of each goal on paper, where he writes down the date, opponent and the number of goals scored by Messi on the given day.
Hernan’s grandson revealed his grandfather’s hobby on social media in an appeal to the Barcelona icon and the dedication to chronicling Messi’s career has earned him a thank you message from the man himself.
What did Messi say?
“Hello Hernan,” Messi said in a video recorded for his 100-year-old superfan. “I’ve listened to your story. It’s crazy, I don’t have my goals written down like you have done it.
“I want to send you a big hug and I want to thank you for keeping track of that. I wish you the best. Bye!”
