Lionel Messi is far from obsessive about his privacy. Be aware that thousands of dissatisfied people only see it in the playground, usually open on social networks. There, he had no problem sharing pictures of his children, his wife and even his pets. But he also did it in front of the microphone, as in the interview he gave to the Spanish newspaper Marca. There, besides talking about his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo, the possibility of Neymar's return to Barcelona and his desire to be directed again by Pep Guardiola, revealed the details of Thiago, Mateo and Ciro, their children. And much more.
Lionel Messi, Antonela Roccuzzo, Thiago, Mateo and Ciro and beautiful Christmas cards.
Relaxed, eager to speak, Leo touched on all the topics he asked. And it was there that he confessed that he no longer left that at his house did not talk about football when Barsa lost. "That was before, now it's not like that, it's always difficult to digest defeat and bad results, but Thiago obliged me to comment on what happened in the match and explain why it wasn't won, now we talk more," he said.
Lionel Messi and Antonela, are on vacation in Rosario.
And that's true: even though he was only six years old (he was born on November 2, 2012), Thiago became one of his father's biggest critics. And Mateo is on his way. "Both are very fond of football, Thiago understands more because he is older, he talks about things about games, games, everything he sees and happens, he is involved in the game," he said.
And when asked if he sued with him, he did not hesitate: "Yes, yes … I have received some criticism, ha, follow Barcelona, League, Champion … He likes, asks, informs himself and when there is no very good results, something tells me, "Leo said.
With Thiago, Mateo and Ciro there is no doubt that the hopes of having an heir are enormous. But Messi is not desperate. Besides that, I won't have a problem because they are dedicated to something else. Their biggest desire is for them to be "happy". And with 2019 knocking on the door, he also told us what he wanted. "After I have my children, priority is always family, that's the most important, the important thing is, obviously I like football, I like it and I live for it, but family above all", he began. He added: "Ciro just started to stand up. For Antonela and me, we want to have a baby. We'll see later, it's still morning. "
