It would be easy for him to simply focus on his own recovery from injury but Lionel Messi made the time to release a video which congratulated Francesco Totti on his 40th birthday.
The Argentine midfielder sent the message via social media with the Italian legend hitting the magic number on Tuesday.
Totti was subject to a celebration from his own teammates and coaching staff on Monday evening, however a message from an individual as respected and acclaimed as Messi will undoubtedly be appreciated.
In a video the 29-year-old made clear his admiration for the Roma’s captain as he enters what is expected to be the twilight of his career.
“I hope you have a nice day and I want to tell you that I always admired you from the moment we first met, I wish you well and hope to see you play for a couple more years,” he stated.
