In the same interview in which Lionel Messi confessed to popular Argentine TV personality Mingo the reason he dyed his hair blonde, the comedian tried to give the Barcelona forward some presents for his son, Thiago.
The surprise arrived when Mingo tried to give Messi a ball, but the Barça man revealed that Thiago doesn't really like them. "I don't buy him many balls or force him to play with them because he doesn't like them that much," Messi said.
However, he added that Barça are working on a project for the players' children which would allow them to get used to the ball and he's hopeful it will get Thiago interested. "Let's see if he gets hooked that way, it would be a good start," the Argentina international added.
He also spoke about his day-to-day life as a father in Barcelona: "Thiago's in school at nine and as it's close to house, I take him with [Antonella]. Afterwards I go to training. Then in the afteroon, after eating, I go to pick him up, as long as I can."
