LIONEL MESSI’s 10-year-old son is ready to follow in his legendary father’s footsteps.
That came after he joined Inter Miami’s academy with the U12 team.
Thiago is the eldest of Messi’s three children that the Argentine world champion shares with his wife Antonela Roccuzzo.
The young player has spent his entire life watching his 36-year-old father shine for Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
And Thiago is now in the United States with his siblings after Messi joined Inter Miami in the summer.
However, he will also be involved in the David Beckham franchise.
That’s because Thiago has now been admitted to the Miami academy, specifically the club’s U12 squad.
He will turn 11 in November and will now get the chance to emulate Messi by preparing for a career in this beautiful football.
Inter Miami will surely be delighted to have signed the son of one of the greatest players of all time.
Messi has 12 league titles, four Champions League titles and one World Cup to his credit.
