Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is tired of his excessive popularity.
This comment was made during an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca.
According to Messi, he sometimes wants to be unrecognized. The Barça forward has such a desire at times when he spends time with family and children.
The footballer stressed that he occasionally wants to just enjoy the ordinary pleasures of life without the scrutiny of the press and numerous fans.
“I’ve been lucky enough to experience all the things I’ve been through. But there are times when I would like to remain anonymous. I would like to enjoy going to the market, the cinema or a restaurant, especially when I am with my children,” Lionel admitted honestly.
