Lionel Messi has been a soccer star since he was a teenager, so few can understand what it’s like to grow up in the public eye.
Luckily, Sergio Aguero, was available to set Messi at ease and conduct a recent interview with the FC Barcelona and Argentina goal machine.
As Messi prepared for yet another interview (where he would probably answer the same bland questions in his usual understated manner), the surprise guest interviewer emerged, thanks to Argentine production company Mundo Leo.
Aguero, 25, and Messi, 26, have been friends and occasional teammates since they were teenagers, so Messi was comfortable answering some unusual questions. The duo riffs on topics such as Messi’s messiest roomate, toughest video-game soccer opponent, and which of their sons will wear the iconic No. 10 jersey for Argentina in the future.
Messi beams with delight throughout the interview, which shows soccer fans that he can have a sunny disposition off the field, after all.
