    Leo Messi ancestor

    Although Messi has for sure Italian ancestors there is probably another one who was an ancient Dutch painter, Adriaen van der Werff.
    That's possibly why he paints such perfect kickstrokes and swirls and, maybe, why each now and then an outstanding Dutch player or team pops out ... LOL
    If You don't believe me, pls have a look .... here's van der Werf self-portrait!

    Wow, it really is him!. He does almost make football appear as a work of art when he gets on the ball.
