The surprise Real Madrid football shirt in Barcelona legend Lionel Messi’s collection

Barcelona legend Lionel Messi revealed his football shirt collection on Instagram and it filled with some legends and some notable surprises.  The Argentinian striker has a man cave literally covered in shirts.  The floor, ceiling and walls.  And there were some surprises from a rogue West Ham shirt and loads from his rivals.

Lionel loves West Ham

Probably the most out of place shirt is the West Ham shirt with Lanzini on the back.

Real Madrid shirts are everywhere

A few weeks ago he said the only player he asked to swap shirts with was Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane;

I am not one to ask to swap shirts. I asked, once… I asked Zidane.

And that Guti would always ask him;

Guti came and asked me. He asked me when we player here (Nou Camp) and when we played there (Santiago Bernabeu). In both matches.

But in his collection we can see he has loads of them, from Di Maria to Raul.

He is a patriot

I think it’s fair to say Lionel loves his fellow country men.  Di Maria, Lanzini and Champ legend Pablo Aimar all make an appearance.
