President of the United States Barack Obama has revealed his daughters wanted to meet Barcelona’s Lionel Messi but he could not arrange for it.
Obama was addressing young entrepreneurs at the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative Town Hall in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and just had to disclose the one experience that millions of football fans across the world would love to encounter which is to meet the reigning world best player a chance which has eluded his daughters.
“I also wanted to bring my daughters here, so they could see the beauty and the vibrancy of this city,” he revealed.
“They’ve already met one famous Argentinean that’s His Holiness Pope Francis. Now they want to meet Messi, but I could not arrange that.”
President Obama will not be the first or last person unable to catch the Argentinian wizard. The First Family of the United States can watch Lionel Messi in action for Barcelona when they take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Quarter Finals on April 5th.
