Many players still approach Messi at the end of games, battling to get their hands on his shirt.

 



 

Yet Messi has only done the same to a single player – Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

Their paths crossed on the pitch at the start of Messi’s career and the Argentine is not embarrassed to admit he begged to get his hands on his rival’s top.

But when he does, it would probably be with the best in the world

Messi said: “I am not one to ask to swap shirts. I asked, once… I asked Zidane.

“Guti came and asked me. He asked me when we player here (Nou Camp) and when we played there (Santiago Bernabeu). In both matches.

“I don’t asked for shirts. If there is an Argentine, I will swap with an Argentine. If not and there is someone else that asks me, I will swap it with them. If not, I do not look and do not ask.”
