Messias’ rise to top football is a particularly impressive story. Because he started his football career by playing amateur football.
He moved to Italy in 2011 before gradually moving up from the lower divisions until Crotone was drawn to Serie B in January 2019
, helping Crotone promote to Serie A. Ah succeeded, and although it didn’t help the team survive in the top league in the following seasons. But he also contributed nine goals in 36 games and eventually moved to Milan.
At some point in his life he also spent the summer working as a delivery boy. Instead of going on vacation like other players do.
