Totti praises Messi for enduring pain and making it to the top:

This is from and - where Totti writes:

“Messi is a colleague I hold in high esteem. He is a unique player who is able to set a game alight in the blink of an eye.

“He has the tricks of a fantasista, he is lighting quick and scores like an out-and-out hitman.

“Messi is very strong and he is an example that must push us all into never giving up because of what he went through as a child.”

Totti of course refers to the fact that Messi was underdeveloped as a child and was forced to leave Argentina for Barcelona in order to receive growth hormone treatments which his parents and his club were unable to afford.

Did Barca know all along that they had a future Ballon d'Or winner on their hands?
