What Does Messi Eat?
Everyone wants to know what makes Messi such an incredible player. Everyone wants to know the reason why Messi is so good. Everyone wants to learn how to play like Messi. What's the secret, is is something he eats?
There's a rumor going around that he doesn't eat but only drinks Yerba Mate prior to games.
We all know he moved from Newell's Old Boys's in Argentina to Barcelona so he could receive the growth hormone shots that were too expensive for his family to pay for. But was their some comic book character like side effect from those shots we don't know about? Perhaps a side effect that enabled him to dribble in a zig zag pattern at high speeds without losing the ball.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger called him the 'play station', but maybe he should have coined a new comic book character name for Messi.
Actually, Messi already has one. He's called the Atomic Flea, as though he grew up near some nuclear reactor and toxic waste seeped into his food and, instead of detrimential side effects, they enabled him to dribble like nobody else in the world.
Some say Messi snacked on Arsenal in the Champions League this past season, and a lot of other teams. But what does he really like to eat?
Most soccer players are known to eat a lot of chicken and pasta as a standard per-game meal, but Messi, it's been said, he likes soup. Yes, hot soup prior to each match. No, actually he likes Spanish tapas, especially those little sandwiches with fish in them. No, in truth, he’s hooked on pistachios. Just look at the image below. That is only if he's not playing though.
What does he eat prior to games? Some have said he eats spinach, but that's another character. Not sure what to believe. We reached out to a few people across the web and have gotten some good answers so far. The top one, gummy worms.
- Gummy worms.
- Probably some sort of food.
- Messi makes his own food. He's magic.
- Ronaldo's dust!
- Rice and beans.
- Cotton candy.
- Green eggs and ham.
- Dani Alves cooks him up the best pasta in the world.
- He don't eat; look how skinny he is.
- Chewing gum.
- Steak for breakfast, steak for lunch, steak for dinner (from a special type of cattle that Barcelona ships from Argentina special for him).
- Piles of spaghetti.
- I'm not sure exactly but most footballers eat bananas or pasta.
- His coach, Pep Guardiola, feeds him from milk from a bottle.
- String cheese of course.
