Lionel Messi and Antonela Roccuzzo might not be as glamorous a couple as Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez, but their story is just as amazing.
The pair knew each other from childhood, Antonela is the cousin of Lionel Messi’s best friend. They very quickly became friends. But football was always a priority for the Argentinian and in 2004, he jetted off to Barcelona, leaving his friendship with Antonela behind him.
But everything changed in 2009, when Messi returned to Rosario to celebrate New Year’s. La Pulga saw Antonela again and they immediately fell in love. Since then, the two turtle doves have had the perfect romance. Lionel Messi has definitely found the love of his life.
