Finally, the man from Santa Fe referred to the birthday of Lionel Messi in full competition: “We are celebrating, we are happy for Messi. I know how hard a birthday is outside your home. We try to make Leo comfortable, happy and happy. Luckily he has a group that makes him feel good. I am happy to have him and this tonight we will blow out the candle. We don’t think about a gift. There is always one from the AFA, we hope they made an effort. I don’t know what will happen at night.”.
