Messi names the ONLY player he has asked to swap shirts – and he’s a Real legend

Date Posted,April 26, 2017

Asking for the match-worn shirt of a fellow professional is the ultimate sign of respect between two footballers.

Most of the time it is an average player attempting to track down the best opposition footballer on the pitch and asking the killer question.

But every now and again a world-class player gets starstruck at their place of work and just cannot resist asking to swap shirts.

Lionel Messi is widely regarded to be a quiet and unassuming character who goes about his business on the pitch with lethal efficinecy.
