You Won’t Believe Lionel Messi’s Favorite TV Show

Messi Has Good Taste in Entertainment

I’ve watched [GOT] more than once… – Leo Messi

The G.O.A.T of world football has haunted my dreams since the summer of last year when he signed with Inter Miami. My son, a nine-year-old British kid, doesn’t discriminate; he loves CR7 and Messi. While I managed to grab an Al-Nassr Ronaldo shirt for nine-year-olds at Christmas, finding a Messi jersey took me from September 2023 until March 2024.

The point is, it goes to show that the star power of Lionel Messi is insurmountable; his ball skills aren’t replicable, and in decades to come, he’ll be celebrated alongside the likes of Pele and Maradona as one of the most talented players in history.

However, our beloved Argentinian, despite what our imaginations conjure up, doesn’t spend night and day playing with a soccer ball. And he does, in fact, manage to find the time to indulge in some downtime sitting opposite a television.

I know—shocking, right? But who would’ve thought that Game of Thrones would be Messi’s favorite TV show? I certainly didn’t… I was thinking something more like Succession or Billions, something more relatable to his bank account. But no, the man himself claimed that the sword-swinging, dragon-fighting drama is his favorite watch.

Don’t get carried away, though. Messi’s statement, “I’ve watched it more than once,” is not only hilarious but indicative of the busy lifestyle he deals with. That said, he might get more chances to binge all eight seasons with a relaxed MLS schedule.

Messi Loves Game of Thrones

Messi’s claim, “I’ve watched it more than once,” really tickled me. But let’s be honest: The moment that any man lays eyes on Khaleesi, you’re instantly intrigued and drawn back for more. That said, soccer news did spot Messi and his gorgeous wife, Antonella, with GOT legend Jon Snow a few years back. So, perhaps he’s a bigger fan than he lets on.

I’m just sitting here wondering if he told him: “You know nothing, Jon Snow!” (LOL).
