It seems that Lionel Messi can do no wrong in Argentina at present, with their third World Cup win, which had La Pulga’s name written all over it, surely the catalyst for the team’s training complex to be renamed in his honour.
The entire Argentina men’s squad, employees and managers attended at the formerly named Casa de Ezeiza to see the unveiling.
It was later announced on the Twitter page of Chiqui Tapia, the president of the Argentina Football Association.
Vivimos una jornada histórica en nuestra Casa de Ezeiza, que desde hoy, pasará a llamarse Lionel Andrés Messi, en homenaje al mejor jugador del mundo.
Quiero agradecer a todos los dirigentes, jugadores, jugadoras y empleados de @afa por haber estado junto a nosotros, una vez más pic.twitter.com/zuSek1Fb6F
