Jorge Messi is the father of Argentine professional football player Lionel Messi.
He is also a steel factory manager.
Early life and coaching Lionel
Jorge resided with his wife in Rosario, the largest city in Argentina, with four children.
His wife, Celia Cuccittini, worked in a magnet manufacturing workshop while Jorge worked as a steel factory manager.
Jorge is of Italian and Spanish descent. His great grandfather was an immigrant from the northcentral Adriatic Marche region of Italy.
Jorge and Celia had three sons Rodrigo Messi, Matias Messi, and Lionel Messi.
Residing in a tight-knit, football-loving family, Jorge enjoyed playing and watching football with his family members.
Lionel developed a passion for the sport from an early age, regularly playing with his older siblings Rodrigo and Matias.
He would also join his cousins Maximiliano and Emanuel. The two of them have even become professional footballers.
Lionel joined a local club called Grandoli at the age of four. He was trained by his father, while his earliest influence as a player came from his maternal grandmother. Since he was 14, Jorge has been Lionel Messi's agent, and his oldest brother, Rodrigo, managed his daily schedule and ads.
His mother and his other brother, Matías, run the Leo Messi Foundation, a charitable organization.
Jorge under investigation for money laundering
Investigators cleared Jorge, Barcelona star Lionel's father, after a Spanish newspaper article accused and wrote that he was under investigation for money laundering connection with drug traffickers.
According to Marca, the claims from El Mundo (via Neil McLeman) that Jorge was being investigated as being involved in the suspected money laundering involving fundraising matches for Messi and Friends, a famous charity, were rebutted by Spanish investigators.
"There is no connection between Jorge and this case," said LMM in a statement. He was not investigated or called, much less charged, to testify, "He has not been investigated or called to testify, much less charged." The management went further and said, "we hope that the paper El Mundo will verify and correct the Interior Ministry's story and investigation."
Relationship, wife, and kids
Lionel and Antonella Roccuzzo were childhood sweethearts, and there's no greater joy than marrying your childhood crush, someone who loves and cares everything about you, and that's the real thing that happened to Lionel and Antonella.
For quite a long time, Lionel and Antonella dated each other and got married.
Messi's first contract was noted on a napkin
Messi's first Barcelona contract was laid out in detail on a paper napkin. Sporting director Carles Rexach of FC Barcelona was so pleased with Messi's abilities that he decided to sign a contract immediately, and at that time, there was no document available.
He had a growth hormone deficiency
Messi was, like the other boys around, not very safe and nutritious in his childhood days. He was diagnosed with a condition in his childhood.

His parents were unable to afford his care, which was $900 a month, paid for by Barcelona after signing him.
