The five-time world player of the year, Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi’s stellar career will be the subject of a new Cirque du Soleil show next year, he said.
“I am proud to announce the creation of a new Cirque du Soleil show in 2019 based on the story of my life and passion for football,” said Messi, whose Instagram feed showed him clad in a T-shirt of the Canadian troupe famed for their extravagant shows.
Cirque du Soleil said on their website that they were thrilled to confirm the link-up with Messi, 31.
“The show will draw its inspiration from the incredible talent and accomplishments of the football legend, who embodies the unique spirit and values of his sport,” the troupe said.
