Apple TV+ revealed a four-part Lionel Messi documentary, the captain of Argentina’s team that won the World Cup.
The service said that the show would give “exclusive behind-the-scenes access” to the football superstar, who scored seven goals as Argentina won the World Cup in Qatar in December.
Apple TV+ said in a statement, “In his own words, Messi tells the definitive story of his amazing career with the Argentina national football team, giving an intimate and never-before-seen look at his quest for a World Cup win that would define his legacy.”
Lionel Messi documentary will be made by Smuggler Entertainment and was shot in Paris, Qatar, and Argentina. There is no date set for when it will be shown.
The series will look back at Messi’s international career, from his first game for Argentina in 2005, when he was sent off two minutes after coming on as a replacement, to the 2014 World Cup final, which Argentina lost.
It will end with the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner lifting football’s top prize at his fifth World Cup, which happened last year.
Messi, who is 35 years old, left Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month. During his two years there, he played 75 games, scored 32 goals, and won two Ligue 1 titles.
He hasn’t said which club team he will play for next, but rumours and a person close to the talks say he could soon sign a rich deal to play in Saudi Arabia.
