A Glimpse into Linoel Messi's Private Language Abilities

While Messi's appearance in the Bad Boys advertisement may have caught many by surprise, his Inter Miami teammate Julian Gressel has already had a glimpse into the soccer star's multilingual talents.

In a recent episode of the Player Manager podcast, Gressel revealed a humorous anecdote about Messi unexpectedly conversing with him in fluent English during a game.

Gressel explained, "Between me and Leo, we've had this running joke a little bit ever since the first few days. I asked him if he speaks any English, and he was like, 'no, not really, your Spanish is probably better than my English.'"

However, during a match against Al Hilal, Messi approached Gressel and gave him instructions in perfect English, leaving the German full-back stunned. 

Gressel recounted the moment, saying, "He covers his mouth and says, 'now, we change. You stay and Jordi (Alba) runs, Jordi goes more in behind.' 


I was just like, 'yes, ok - sounds good!' The funny part was after, he goes, 'English, pretty good, no?'. I was like, 'yes, very very good! I understood everything!'"

Messi's ability to communicate fluently in multiple languages has only added to his global appeal and legendary status. 

As one of the most recognizable and admired athletes on the planet, his unexpected display of English proficiency has captivated fans and critics alike.

With the Bad Boys advertisement generating widespread attention, it seems Messi's linguistic talents have once again proven that he is a true master of his craft, both on and off the field.
