Lionel Messi was immortalized earlier this year when his name was embedded into a new word in the Spanish language.
Now the 25-year -old living legend’s career achievements will be commemorated by a new museum set to open in his hometown of Rosario, Argentina.
According to reports circulating in the South American media, plans for the museum are set for completion in an estimated two years, and would include memorabilia from throughout his career.
Though Messi’s museum is still just in the planning stages, let’s hope the curators remember to include this peculiar piece of memorabilia in the collection.
Messi and his Barcelona teammates will travel to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday to take on Zlatan Ibrahimovich and Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.
