Barcelona star Lionel Messi drops his debut clothing line

Lionel Messi has done it all on a football pitch. 

He’s considered by many as the greatest player of all-time – and for good reason.

The Argentine broke into Barcelona‘s senior team at the age of 16 and since then, he hasn’t looked back. 

Four Champions League wins, 10 La Liga titles and six Copa del Rey trophies have been won during a 16-year career, which has also seen Messi break too many individual records to name. 

A joint-record five Ballon d’Or wins says it all really.

Messi has spent his entire career winning on the pitch and now, his latest business venture will ensure he wins off of it too. 

That’s because he’s dropped a brand new clothing line, hoping to conquer the fashion world. 

His range, which is named ‘Messi’ – very creative, we know – was announced at a venue on Paseo de Gracia, one of Barcelona’s most famous shopping avenues. Check out his merchandise below:

Very nice indeed. 

Messi’s sister, Maria Sol, is responsible for the new project and she spoke at the launch event. 

“It’s a dream come true,” Maria told the crowd, per Spanish publication Sport.

“Fashion is what I like the most, ever since I was a child, and it was always a dream of mine to be involved with a clothing brand.

“I studied a lot to dedicate myself to this profession. When an opportunity such as this one presents itself, you have to take advantage of it.”

Although Messi didn’t speak at the event himself, he has previously stated his interests in ventures outside of football. 

“[This] is something I really wanted. I like exploring different areas that are interesting beyond sport. I always try to take advantage of every opportunity to participate in something new.” 

Messi has already conquered football and if his clothing line is a hit, he’ll soon be dominating the fashion world too.
