Messi spoke in English. It looks like the lessons are paying off
For now, just a little.
We all have long been accustomed to the fact that Messi, unlike many other football players, communicates only in his native Spanish.
But at the PSG gala dinner, Leo unexpectedly decided to answer in English to the host, who said that he needed to work on his Spanish.
“Very nice of you” (“Very nice of you”), the Argentine suddenly said.
Hearing something from him in English is a rarity. Apparently, learning the language is paying off. Messi revealed in December 2021 that he has been learning English for “over a year“, meaning he took it up in 2020 while still at Barça.
The reason why he decided to learn it anyway may be related to his future profession. Leo often says that he would like to one day become the sports director of a football club.
