There must be a lot of players who very proudly boast having a Lionel Messi shirt in their possession, and now we know who many of them are.
Messi posted a photo on his Instagram page of his amazing collection of shirts picked up from opponents – and unsurprisingly it’s proved a huge hit on social media.
Messi is pictured sat alongside his son Thiago in what appears to be his memorabilia room looking extremely proud of what is a very impressive collection.
There are many illustrious names on the walls – and even the ceiling and glass floor with shirts absolutely everywhere.
Perhaps the most surprising shirt on show is Manuel Lanzini’s West Ham number, right between a special Argentina number 10 jersey and one of Luis Suarez’s.

It will take quite something for a fellow pro to trump Messi’s remarkable array of shirts.
