|Thiago Messi – Lionel Messi’s son|
The Children of FC Barcelona stars Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique have all started playing for FC Barcelona as they look to become like their fathers in the next couple of years.
According to Spanish source Mundo Deportivo, Thiago Messi (Messi’s son), Milan (Pique’s son) and Benjamin (Luis Suarez’s son) started training at the FCB Escola on Monday morning at the Annexes Miniestadi field close to the Camp Nou.
The report says that the FC Barcelona players took advantage of their day off to accompany the kids to the training ground with Lionel Messi arriving with Thiago twenty minutes before schedule. Shortly after, Suarez and his wife Sofia arrived with Benjamin and then Gerard Pique and Shakira with Milan.
Few weeks ago, Barcelona offered players of the first team and other employees the opportunity to enroll their sons and daughters aged 3-5 years in the project. Lionel Messi recently stated that Thiago doesn’t love playing too much with the ball but took advantage of the opportunity to register him.
The aim of the school is to instill the Barça DNA into the young players, they will have trainings two days in a week. The first day was a special session as the house of the media weren’t allowed access to the training in order to give the kids some privacy.
Thiago Messi and Milan Pique are both three years old with Benjamin Suarez joining them soon, their fathers are the best in the world in their respective positions and one can only hope they pass it unto their sons.
