The oldest of the brothers is part of the Florida team’s U12 team and this Thursday he gave his first interview in which he talked about everything: from his ability with his left foot, his dad’s advice and even who he likes more between Haaland and Mbappé.

At a table held by José Ramón de la Morena, president of the foundation that has his name, Thiago was accompanied by his colleagues and friends Benjamín Suárez plus Roger and Eli, a Colombian boy and another Venezuelan who are part of the team led by Diego García, also present at the talk.

One of the most important moments came when the 12-year-old boy had to answer which country he wants to represent in the future and he did not hesitate: “I want to play with the Argentine National Team”. Furthermore, he blurted out when they insisted on Spain, where he was born: “No, I do not think so”.

The complete word of Thiago Messi

Near the end of the conversation, the boys were asked to choose between Haaland and Mbappé and Thiago went with the Norwegian: “The truth is that each one has their best things, but If I have to choose one, I think I’ll go with Haaland. because I always liked him.” And which player would he take to his team? “Lamine Yamal”, was the name he revealed.
