Trending Now

Lionel Messi, renowned for his extraordinary football skills, has a surprisingly relatable post-game meal preference, as revealed in a leaked document by SportsBible.

Contrary to the typical image of athletes strictly adhering to lean proteins and salads, Messi opts for a more indulgent choice.

After intense football matches, while some of his former teammates at Barcelona, like Marc Andre Ter Stegen, enjoyed sushi and Nutella sandwiches, and Andres Iniesta preferred a ham and cheese pizza with a sausage sandwich, Messi's choice was simpler yet equally satisfying.

The eight-time Ballon D'or winner's post-match meal of choice? A classic cheese pizza, reminiscent of the 'Home Alone' style, simple yet delicious.

This revelation came from a leaked list of meal requests by Barcelona stars after a game. The list, dating back to the 2014 season and reported by SportsBible, showcases the varied and specific post-game cravings of these top athletes. It's a reminder that even the world's best footballers sometimes choose comfort food over strict dietary regimes.
