Murtaza’s dream comes true
Murtaza Ahmadi has seen his dream come true. The Afghan boy has received two Lionel Messi shirts, one Barcelona and another Argentina, and a football. It was the Argentina shirt that carried a personal message from the Barça man. “I love Messi and my shirt says that Messi loves me”, said the five-year-old.
A month ago, a photo of Murtaza went viral. In it, he appeared wearing a blue and white striped plastic bag with the name Messi and the number 10 written on the back in pen. The Barça star saw the snap and leapt into action, sending the youngster two shirts and a football, which will now replace the volleyball he had been using to play the beautiful game.
