Our leader meets our hero!
We told you last week that Messi and Ronaldo would be in town for the Dubai Sport Conference taking place today and tomorrow at Madinat Jumeirah. Today, a series of talks and workshops take place with many well known football personalities in town. None more so than Lionel Messi, who had time to chat with Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Just a casual chat or will we see Messi playing in the UAE national league sometime soon? Stranger things have happened!
Afterwards he had time to chill with some friends
