Lionel Messi the GOAT05/06/2018 17:32
Lionel Messi fans claim that the 5-time Ballon D’Or winner is the Greatest Of All Time [GOAT]. They usually use a goat emoji to emphasize their claim.
A New York City magazine called PAPER has taken Lionel Messi’s GOAT status to a next level by pairing the superstar with animals for the purpose of a photoshoot.
The magazine has arranged a Lionel Messi photoshoot with a number of goats ahead of the upcoming World Cup.
“I am a fan of animals”, Messi told PAPER. “I grew up with animals and they taught me a lot of things. Now we have our dog Hulk who is part of out family. Our children learn a lot from Hulk and they have a loving relationship with him”.
Meanwhile, it is easier for Messi to have a photoshoot with animals then consider himself the GOAT. “I do not think of myself as the best, I think I am just another player”, he said.
The photoshoot happened at La Granja Natura, a Barcelona educational farm center.
Veterinarians and other staff from the farm were at the shoot to ensure the safe treatment and safety of the animals.
