River Plate keeper Marcelo Barovero said Lionel Messi’s modesty left him speechless after Barcelona won the World Club Championship 3-0 in December.
“Messi’s modesty at Club World Cup left me speechless – out of admiration. That kid is incredible. When Messi helped me to get up at Club World Cup, I told him: I fulfilled my son’s dream – I saved a shot from you.”
After seeing the Argentine striker score as Barcelona won the World Cup Championship final, the shot stopper asked Messi if he would ask Barca keeper Bravo to swap shirts. He told Central America’s El Grafico newspaper what happened next.
“I asked Messi after the game if he could get me Bravo’s shirt. He came back with the shirt, and with his boots: ‘For your son'”
“I send a pic of Messi’s boots to my son: Guess who they are from…? He couldn’t believe it, and even less when he got them.”
