Much like the children of other great athletes, there’s always the hope that kids will surpass their parent’s shadow. With Messi’s level of excellence, Thiago and Mateo are no exception. Moreover, their father’s peers Christiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, also have famous children who have shown the potential to be great like their fathers. So, it is not unusual for us to think that Thiago and Mateo will grow up to be great footballers as well.
It comes with no doubt that Messi’s level of skill would most likely be biologically transferred to his offspring, much like in other top-tier athletes. Lionel Messi has 3 sons now: Thiago(9), Mateo(6), and Ciro(3). And much like their dad, these young tots have the tools to also pick up the ball and follow the path their father has carved, so much so that they may even surpass him!
Let’s talk about Thiago and Mateo a bit. We will exclude Ciro as he is far too young and should be afforded a sliver of normalcy that comes with being a child. However, it doesn’t mean that the offers are not ready to be stamped and delivered. After all, Thiago was enrolled into the Barcelona Academy at the age of 3, so it is possible.
In an interview, Lionel mentioned that Thiago is a real phenomenon when it comes to his football. He is very passionate and follows his father’s matches in all the leagues. Thiago also loves cars and motorcycles and is known to be the more athletic of the bunch. His performance exemplifies the importance of hard effort and determination.
Much like his parents, Thiago surrounds himself with friends he can learn from and partner with. A good example is Luiz Suarez’s son, Benjamin Suarez. He was a friend and teammate to Thiago at La Masia, the Barcelona Academy. Benjamin was also known to be one of the best players and is clearly following in his father’s footsteps. Thiago is now playing at PSG with his dad and younger brother as he is part of the U-10 team.
Mateo has been commended even by his father as the one with better coordination and inherent raw talent. As seen in some of his uploaded home videos, the ‘little troll’, as he is affectionately called by his dad and fans alike, dribbles the ball with ease and copies a signature score replicated by his father in honour of the great Maradona. He was also enrolled at the same Barcelona Academy and is now playing for the PSG Academy’s U-7 team after the move to France. Unfortunately, Mateo tires very quickly, and, in comparison to his brother, he seems to be less interested in developing his skill. However, it’s still too soon to know if he will focus more on developing his football skills. If he does decide to focus on the sport, he has a great future ahead of him.
Lionel Messi is one of the greatest players ever crossed the field, but even he struggles to find his place in PSG. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner scored only one goal so far for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1. Messi is still fighting to adapt to the new championship.
PSG must be more convincing, with Messi, Mbappe and Neymar magic not enough to keep bailing them out, but there are many games ahead of the campaign to work things out.
