Surrounded by two Barca soccer stars since his beginnings, Messi had the privilege of being picked up from his house by Ronnie and Deco every morning to go to training. That's where a true friendship started growing and La pulga will even pay a tribute to his two buddies. Tribute that's been unknown to most soccer fans.
On October 16th, 2004 Messi plays his first professional game against Espanyol Barcelona. He wears a Barça jersey with the number 30. Why did he choose this number? Well simply because 30 is the addition of Ronaldinho's number (10) and Deco's number (20). A beautiful homage and an absolutely magical story.
Gentlemen, all three of ya'll are legends and will be forever...
