How tall do you think Messi stands in the morning?
Editor Rob
I'm sure he's 5ft 7
Luis miguel said on 22/Sep/19
most soccer players are over listed, probably he is 1.69.3 in the morning and 1.67 at night Rob.

Hi Rob! Maybe it's time to add a new foto of Messi because this picture is quite old. Don't you think?
Editor Rob
If there was one from the prphotos I use I would, unfortunately sometimes they don't have a great choice.
Bu?ra said on 29/Aug/19
Rob, Which time of day do you think the height is most accurate?
Editor Rob
Well we all have a range of height, so technically any height you measure barefoot is a 'correct' one...it's just if we are fitting in with how others state or get their height taken, then being up several hours fits in with that.
Blas said on 24/Aug/19
170.5 morning / 168.5 night

I think this is wrong.I think Messi just measures 1.68 m once a commentator even mentioned he is 1.67 m on a footballmatch which is not impossible look here he is with phillip lahm Click Here and phillip lahm is 1.70 m and here you can really see it clearly Lahm has at least 2 cm on him at least!

You have to wonder if he would not have achieved more if he were 6'1 like Ronaldo, but even that question is unfair. He probably learned and created advantages in his play from his height that may not have been possible at other heights, like precise, close contact dribbling and striking. His skills in those areas cannot be disputed.
----
Stupid question. "Could ask that for any footballer. What if x was quicker? What if x had a better touch? What if x was a more accurate passer etc. etc." As it stands for Messi, the way he plays is perfectly suited to his height with his dribbling ability, close touch, balance, low centre of gravity. The same traits that came through in legends or current top players like Maradona, Pele, Puskas, Romario, Baggio, Aguero, Neymar etc. all who were 5 ft 8 or less. Not 6 ft 1.

You say it's unfair to ask the question............yet you still asked it!?!?!?!?

Hello rob How tall do you think his teammate Malcolm is ? He seems 1inch shorter than Messi or 0.75 inch ?
JoeRick said on 18/Mar/19
5'6 or 5'7, really doesn't matter, it's amazing what he has achieved as one of the best footballer at either of those heights. You have to wonder if he would not have achieved more if he were 6'1 like Ronaldo, but even that question is unfair. He probably learned and created advantages in his play from his height that may not have been possible at other heights, like precise, close contact dribbling and striking. His skills in those areas cannot be disputed.
Abu said on 17/Mar/19
Hello me again. Is a few mm more noticeable ?
Editor Rob
It won't be...but half inches can be spotted. Sometimes they appear smaller or greater. Just camera angles, different head sizes or posture can turn a half inch into a 'barely anything' or seemingly 1-2 inch difference.
Abu said on 16/Mar/19
Hi rob ! I was just measured 169.7 out of bed and 168.2-3 bedtime. Am I the same height as Lionel Messi at 5’61/2 ?

You would look roughly the same height, though I feel messi could measure a few mm's more.

167 max for Messi barefoot in morning.
Heightguy said on 5/Mar/19
On ESPNFC Messi is listed at 5.6. It is very unusual for an athlete to be listed as shorter than they actually are. An athlete’s height is almost always inflated by at least an inch. I’m not saying that Messi is 5.5, but in my opinion, 5’6 is his height, 5’6.5 is his morning height. He may even drop below 5’6 at night.
Jancys said on 5/Mar/19
No way. She is 5ft 6 maximum. Click Here on this picture, 5ft 8 Neymar is at least 3.5 inches taller. 165 cm for Messi.

@Jackson James

What brings you to that conclusion?
Jackson James said on 10/Feb/19
Clearly less than 5ft6. Messi's somewhere between 165cm and 167cm max
Rick1 said on 5/Feb/19
@miller

Surprisingly football unlike other sports such as combat sports heights are generally consistent I’ve found. Ribery was measured on a documentary at 170 If I remember rightly and has always looked consistent. It may be true that Messi might be closer to 5’6 at times but I think lahm is a strong 5’7 maybe 171cm
miller said on 16/Jan/19
Lahm is 170 cm ribery is also closer to 5-6 than 5.7
rick 1 most soccer players are overlisted
Rick1 said on 14/Jan/19
@Miller i think lahm is consistently taller than 5'7 - hes slightly taller than ribery. I think lahm is 171cm and Messi 170

Editor Rob
At times he's seemed 5ft 6, but still think he would measure over that.
Canson said on 28/Oct/18
I think 168-168.5 is a better look. He would likely measure 169 sometime in the morning. Max 5’7 out of bed
Yuriy90 said on 22/Oct/18
If Philipp Lahm 5'7 then Messi 5 "5.
Rob R. said on 3/Oct/18
I think 5’ 6 1/2” is spot on. It’s refreshing to see a star player who gives his TRUE height.
Iwan said on 3/Oct/18
Rob are you familiar with the stories / rumours that Messi was given HGH at a young age due to a hormone defect ? If so what are your opinions on it ?
Editor Rob
Yes I've read that he had hormone deficiency, so without taking hgh he might not have been anywhere near 5ft 6-7...and the world would never have seen a player of his calibre entertaining hundreds of millions over the years.

Rob, have you thought about putting him to 168cm? I think there's more evidence to suggest that he's closer to 5ft6 flat than closer to 5ft7.

Average vote looks a bit low. Imo, he looks closer to 5'7, around 5'6.75 mark. What do you think Rob, what's more likely (5'6.25 or 5'6.75)?
Alexhunter2004 said on 28/Mar/18
He's 171 during the measurement during medical test
Johnson said on 24/Mar/18
Minimum 170.0 mark if you guys would see a medical test of him

Yes. You can argue that is really early morning, gutbusting etc

But anyone who thinks he is measured by Barcelona doctors shorter than that is fooling thenselves
Hijoputamos said on 1/Mar/18
Best footballers ever had small feet. They say to kick and control the ball better if you have small feet.
Florian said on 28/Feb/18
He's the best football player I have ever seen. Always loved watching him play and sometimes it used to be like a therapy for me. I think even a decent ammount of Real Madrid fans know he is the best. It's just hard to admit due to the fact that he plays for their biggest rival and also due to the history he made with Barcelona(which also meant in matches against them).
It's fascinating how this guy who is 9/10 times the shortest on a football pitch achieved so many things. I always like to bring his height in discussion. He's the greatest example that in football(and maybe other sports)height isn't
correlated to immediate success. There's also Pele and Maradona(both below average height) but I think he has surpassed them since 4-5 years ago. When you think about the best footballers in history you heard these two most of the times, so that's another example.

If I could give a guess about his height, I think he's below 170cm range but not that much. Between 168-169 and that average guess is the best. He looks shorter a lot of times due to his body proportions, his head seems average level(we've seen that picture with Bieber in which his skull is like twice the size of Bieber who's very tiny) and also he has average sized hands and feet so that explains it.
James B 170.8cm said on 26/Feb/18
The media and fans also like too make fun of tom cruises height even though he is 5ft7.75 lol. Even stallone who is 5ft9 has had abuse over his height. You dont see people give daniel radcliffe a lot of abuse do you?

I think if your not tall but good looking (no homo) people out of jealousy will want too make fun of your imperfections like height.

That said Messi is average in looks so maybe could just be because of his success or being autistic

Real Madrid fans probably. And yes they're exaggerating how short he is, much like rivals liked to exaggerate how short Napoleon was.

If david beckham (who i also think has a touch of autism) avoided eye in interviews people would think it was cute or hes just shy. If your an ugly-average looking bloke like Messi people think your shifty.
---------------------------------------------------------
I haven't seen this topic being debated on TV shows, regarding Messi's possible autism. It was rarely mentioned if anything. He looks like a pretty average/normal bloke to me. As a hetero-sexual male I wouldn't call him ugly. He matured pretty good at 30 now, and yes, there's a huge difference from when he was 18-19(see that picture comparison with long hair and now with beard). That beard gives him a more manly look. There's even a video of asking girls whom they prefer and all like the bad boy Messi look with tattoos.

I think you sound like having low self esteem James.

There are different spectrums of autism. Messi's form of autism(if he really has it)most likely is a low spectrum, which is high-functioning autism. He might reveal some symptoms from his body language. I noticed that a lot of times he avoids looking at the camera or the reporter when doing interviews. He might be a shy person too. Other than that he's a pretty normal person, but as a footballer he can't be compared. I haven't witnessed anyone as good as him.

I would say he is 5'6".


I noticed at times from the past female interviewers judge him negativley for his lack of eye contact.

I am only 1 inch taller than messi and look very similar too him facially. And yes i have plenty of haters despite having not even a fraction of messi's success and only ever having worked for 6 months in a place of employment.

I do get a lot of verbal abuse over my height from my brother who is 5f11.25.

Like messi i too am autistic.

Rob apparently messi was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome as a child.

j.pierre said on 6/Feb/18
There are no datas related to Messi as far as I know. They never show the stadiometer decimals when they measure him. It's like they want to hide something, which I doubt. Even if they would show, they would never measure him properly, and give him benefit of the doubt with haircut etc. Just like doctor didn't really have the balls to push the stadiometer on Neymar's hair :)

Messi must be 169 if measured early. Never a 170. Probably drops to 167 at night. Never that the look of a 170 too. His head is also bigger compared to his body, so that might not help him too much. A real 170 guy is Andres Iniesta. 171.5 in the morning probably. Jordi Alba for me is 168-169, he was busting a gut at measurement. We also saw how much hair can give you. New signing Yerri Mina was listed as 195 everywhere, and people were calling him "Barcelona's new giant". Apparently he would be around 192, which is still very tall but not quite 195 territory which is a freak.

He looks so much better in the second picture, but he's also about 10 years older and fully matured(no acne etc) plus in the first picture you can notice the side effects of growth hormone treatment, he had thicker neck.

On topic though, Messi is 168cm on the dot.

He's probably close to 170cm in a morning measuring. He's shorter than Iniesta who's listed 171 by 2-3cm so 167 absolute lowest and 169 the highest.

Greatest of all time for me.

The greatest footballer is 5'6", in my eyes he's a giant. I have mad respect for him because he doesn't give up easily when he gets tackled/wrestled by guys who are sometimes twice his size. Also that header against Manchester United shocked me to be fair. It's been a joy to watch him for over 10 years now.

Tom said on 16/Nov/17
Rob, he gets a lot of names like dwarf, shrimp, little man etc. I get it that some are haters jelous of his success(also some fans of Ronaldo) but even some of his fans call him names. Certainly he's not that short to be called a dwarf. I think he's definitely lower 5'6" range. Iniesta is around 5'7" and doesn't get called these names. I didn't hear of Scholes, Owen or even Sanchez who's shorter than Messi to get these names(or as often).

Seriously maybe it's me but 5'6-5'7" doesnt seem that short to be pointed out. I guess being the best footballer could bring haters too.
Editor Rob: it certainly will annoy some people, that a short man turned out to be arguably the best footballer over the last decade.

they might aim this negativity towards him because they simply wish they had 1/100th the talent or success as a guy like Messi has had.

Not a good angle but from here you can see he's always been shorter than Iniesta. Also compare their bodies, Iniesta has that slimmer look and longer legs. Messi always looked sub 5'7" / 170cm. Between 167-168 I would say. He could measure a bit over 168 in the morning.

Canson said on 16/Aug/17
@Johnson: because your standard is different from Rob's. You use the 3 hours out of bed or 2 hours out of bed and throw it out there like that's his true height. That's your estimate and yours only. While Rob uses more of a normal height unless he is unsure which is often the case with athletes here because many are listed 1/2" higher than they are as is. Your estimates are always consistent with trying to "justify" what a club told you and you tend to inflate everyone else's heights in comparison with them to make the "math" work. That is not a good way or sound way to estimate unfortunately. So I have to go with what's rob said Messi is 169 only because all of your estimates are inflated by 1-2cm. Rob tends himself to have lots of celebs listed a bit higher as is giving them the benefit of the doubt when he is uncertain. example Michael jordan anyone who has ever described him including people who have met him as well as other players say he's 6'4 to 6'5 you have him as over 6'5 Rob has him 6'5". When 6'6" guys are meeting him and saying he's 6'4" range obviously that's what it means that he isn't quite 6'5". And he was drafted and measured 6'4.5 in 1984 at 21 so doubt he grew when people say he looks the same size now. Now 6'5" is a safe estimate for Rob as he hasn't met him so it's maybe a roundup but looking at him with Kobe MJ is not taller than Kobe is. I would take the 170 for Messi a bit more seriously and consider that a possibility but I just don't see it as a low if he measures where he does. Also if you didn't upgrade everyone else you comment on.

166cm for messi
James B said on 3/Aug/17
Rob did say he thought nessbitt could have shrunk by now.


By the way I didn't feel much shorter than nessbitt when I met him in 2007 and I am only a fraction over 170cm.
Nik said on 1/Aug/17
I reckon he is about 5'6.25"!
Johnson said on 30/Jul/17
@Canson you should see him with Nesbitt. Rob thought Nesbitt was 180-181. A person who is 164... he took a picture with Messi and Messi looked 6 cm taller than him. I doubt Messi is shorter than 169 evening. I don't rule out 169 flat for Messi evening but not shorter than that and taller than that figure during all morning
Johnson said on 29/Jul/17
@Canson I only see 3.5 max between Messi and Neymar
James B said on 26/Jul/17
Rob remember I saw Nessbitt in person and when I got his autograph I didn't feel much shorter than him at all and I am not even 5ft8 . And yes I thought he looked much smaller than Ronaldo.

But you are still convinced he is Nessbitt is a legit 5'11?
Editor Rob: I think he was a legit 5ft 11, whether he has lost a little fraction? Not impossible now.
James B said on 24/Jul/17
Rob do you think the clip is inaccurate for judging height?
Editor Rob: I don't know how high up the camera is, but Nesbitt could certainly make Messi look 5ft 7 and with Ronaldo at the event he looked over 2 inches smaller in the same area.

maybe a bad height day for Nesbitt 😱
Canson said on 24/Jul/17
@Johnson: Messi is not 170. Why do you always inflate everyone's heights?

@Richard Neymar and Messi as we can see in your pics, are 3-4 cm apart

Messi is a good 170.
Richard said on 20/Jul/17
So Rob 170 cm just awake,169 cm during the day and 168 cm in the evening?
Editor Rob: yeah it is possible, but maybe not quite 168 flat, but 168.3-5 range at a low.

Do you think Messi is between 168-170 cm? 170 cm just after he woke up, 169 cm during the medical test and 168 in the evening? Or 171 cm just waking up and 169 in the evening?
Editor Rob: on a bad day Messi might fall to 168-9 zone.

@Sheru

If he was 169 at age 24/25 how can he now be 170?
Nothing more than 167/168cm, he just upgraded himself a 2-3cm over the years
Wizo said on 27/Jun/17
@Sheru 170cm is 5ft7.

I think Messi is 5ft6 range the more I look at him, he can pull off solid 5ft6 at times, but other times he looks shorter. He could be anywhere from 167-169 but most likely 168cm.

After so many football heights being inflated, you could believe Messi's 5ft7 listing is not 100% accurate, although he's not far from it.

Wizo said on 21/Apr/17
I think Messi might be closer to 5ft6 than it seems, because I looked at pictures of him with players of similar height and he even seemed shorter than 5ft6 flat Javier Saviola when he was 19. I don't know if he gained another cm after that age. Could be possible. But it's almost certain he's not 5ft7. He is shorter than 171cm Iniesta. Regardless of his height, he is probably the greatest footballer of his generation(and widely considered the best by a lot of football legends)

@Rorona: I agree that is not a good way to decipher a measurement. But I think that is just Johnson and I respect him because he is different in his approach but he embraces his differences and does a great job handling the criticism respectfully.

@Johnson: that was how you guessed Ibra tho as well and he is at most a legit 194 maybe 6'4.5 guy (I'd say the former if that) as he likely was measured AM as well. In reality I'd say he's the same height as I am tops 193.9cm

Roronoa said on 17/Mar/17
@johnson with all due respect really bro some barca fan you are. You are calling the mugshot fake and then you say that by lip reading u got ineista height to be 171.4( i saw that on xavi's page). Lip reading seriously. I am not barca, messi or ineista hater. I m just stating some true facts here. Everyone lies abt their height by 1-2 inches. And just by looking at someone u can't guess his/her height. Even during height measurements dr. Generally upgrade ur height to next inch. I don't know whts his real height but still based upon different sources i would say messi lies within 5"5- 5"6. Ineista being 1 inch to 1/2 inch taller n xavi shorter

@Nik I didn't post anything with political or ideological content in the Hitler's page, it must be the other James user. I only have post ONE single comment on the Hitler's page. On that comment I post pictures to compare Hitler's height with Franco, but I don't say nothing ideological, racist or political. Canson is right there are two persons using the "James" username. The other James is less active, he doesn't write so many comments as me though.
Canson said on 13/Mar/17
@Ma: I agree with you 100%. I like Johnson and do both think he's a troll. But yes he does upgrade everyone and has bizarre reasons for his estimates.

@Nik: I agree that sometimes things can be interpreted differently. However Keep in mind that there are several James's here on this site. Now I don't think As mentioned above Johnson is a troll but he does inflate people. Now he is usually like Ma said within an inch. People who add two or more in my book are trolls and inageee with Ma. The upgrades are trolls more less than a downgrader. My reason because it's common knowledge that most heights here are inflated and overlistwd
Nik said on 11/Mar/17
@Canson

I have no problem with James's opinions but he has recently wound me up with some of his comments like the one to Johnson on this page and the comment on Hitlers page. I just think he ought to tone it down a bit at times with some of the comments that he makes.
ma said on 10/Mar/17
@Johnson
For me a troll is someone who inflates height. If is around 1-2 cm could be ok but not more than 1 inch...
But a troll is even someone who thinks that everybody need an upgrade
@Johnson is not a troll, but I do agree on @James quote. ( he probably is a 5 ft 8 and upgrade everybody to make his 5 ft 9 claim more belivable )
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
@Nik: what is your definition of troll? And my apologies I thought you were the same Nik who discussed Kapernick's height. Sorry for that as I am apparently wrong. And I didn't say Johnson was a troll. I don't think he is. He has his opinions but is a very respectful person here so no need for me to call him one. I said he wasn't one neither is James. But if you're going to say James is why is that? Because He downgrades people? Johnson upgrades almost everyone he comments on? But that is his opinion on the people he comments on so it's fine. I think the word troll should be defined because we all have different definitions of it.
Nik said on 4/Mar/17
@Canson

I have never been on the page of Tom Brady or Kapernick (has he got a page? Plus I have never heard of him) never mind making any comments about either of them. I have never been a troll on this website in any way. You say James isn't a troll, we'll all right then but he has certainly really hacked me off recently. Isi it all right for him to say that Johnson is a troll then when this is clearly not true?
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
@Nik: and you saying Tom Brady is 192 or Kapernick at 192 isn't trolling? James for sure isn't a troll. Johnson isn't a troll either he's free to express his opinion, but Johnson notoriously inflated heights and almost every one he comments on and always has an excuse for it. Go look at Ibra's page where he talks to me and says "we didn't hear the last digit or even Derrick rose
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
Sorry Johnson but the average is 5'6.4 so he's 168-169. Not 170. That unfortunately is his height it's not oh well he's this 2-3 hrs out of bed or in the morning etc
Johnson said on 26/Feb/17
@ma I actually would not mind to be measured by Rob but I am very aware of what my height is because I have been doing medicals and measured myself in the wall and I also have said which my figures are for a day! My point with footballers is not related to what my height is. It is related with their medicals. I think I have a good eye guessing heights.

@Johnson is not a 5 ft 9 guy. He is probably a strong 5 ft 8 like Big Rob Paul.

@James

Well I have read reports which say that the average Spanish man is 175 cm which is incidentally the same height as Johnson.

Also you mention about Johnson trolling but I have come across nothing to suggest this and it is you who appears more likely to be trolling.
Johnson said on 23/Feb/17
@James I provided clips and said official listings of Barcelona footballers and bring out the information I have to share. Like information I have for Jordi Alba 170.2 Iniesta 171.4 Sergi Roberto 178.9 Bravo 182.5 Cilessen 185 Bartra 183.3... and then I give personal opinions and what I think about leaked listings pics etc and also I have a section in a site where I share all this and I have posted more than 1,000 pictures man. Then I say honest opinions there, and believe me, some other users agree and disagree but there I don't have that generous reputation you label me.

What you say about my height doesn't have any sense at all. Because I am very transparent with all my measurements and don't use bust a gut, because that is to cheat. So please don't insult me when I am very honest and transparent about my height and measurements from morning to night. It is ridiculous to want Carmelo Anthony to be taller or Messi to make believable what? Haha. Common sense says it is in the other way round. If Messi is 170 cm oficially then people try to believe he is 168 cm or try to downgrade Bieber because you like to be quite taller than him...or to want Nadal to be 183 just to make him close to the height of the person

Respect
James said on 22/Feb/17
@Johnson I respect you. I respect you a lot. But stop with this trolling lol. You always upgrade everybody. Almost everybody deserves an upgrade according to you. I think you are biased and you have a conflict of interest. It seems like you want people to be listed taller to make your own height claim believable. Maybe you are a guy who add some cm on his height. You always post links to the spanish newspaper Marca. So probably you are a bit under average Spanish guy. According to scientific studies the average Spaniard is 1.76. You are 1.75 and you claim to be 1.76 or 1.77 and people don't believe you. That's why you want everybody to be taller, so you can be perceived as taller in comparison with them. Again, don't get angry with me. But I'm not the first person who notices your tendency to upgrade almost everyone which is likely due to a conflic of interest.
Johnson said on 10/Feb/17
@MessiFan I agree. According to all pics I have seen so far I think Messi is 170 cm tall, Pablo Aimar 170 cm and Saviola 169 cm tall. Xavi was measured 168.5 cm exactly. Kun Agüero is around 5'8
MessiFan said on 7/Feb/17
Too many people on this site (including the editor - though rarely) always forget to provide any reason behind their opinions. In addition to comments like "Messi is closer to a flat 5ft 6 than 5ft 7 is really small guy", maybe state why you believe so or provide some sorts of evidence to make your statement at least somewhat convincing.

@andre These are many clips of Barcelona players measurements online you can look up.
- Xavi was measured at 168cm and Messi is 1-2 cm taller than him.
- Iniesta was measured at 171 cm and Messi is around 1 cm shorter than him.
- Jordi Alba was measured at 170 cm and Messi is about the same as him.
- Neymar is approximately 5'8 and Messi is around 1 inch shorter than him.
This put Messi at around 169-170 cm. The 5'5 mugshot seems off. People always like to put Messi down and clown on his height, but in reality he's actually not as short as what people would like to think.

James said on 28/Oct/16
Well, a little bit off topic but I'm gonna post here.

Messi isn't that height because of his childhood condition, but because it's in his genes. Look up pictures with his family. His dad is roughly the same height as him(or shorter sometimes)and his 2 brothers are in the 5ft5-5ft6 range. He's the tallest out of all. If he wouldn't have been treated with injections, his adult height would be like 4ft11 which can be described as hobbit(in legal terms). With that treatment, Messi just reached his max potential. That's genetics guys.

Besides, how is 169cm abnormally short? It's roughly 2 inches below average if you wanna use imperial system. Yes, because usually you round any 0.5 inch to a full inch so it's 5ft6.5 to 5ft7.
It's a fairly common height and you can see a bunch of guys that height walking the street. Abnormally short would be 5ft3(160cm) or below, that is extremly rare anywhere except some Asian countries.
-------------------------------------------------------
Also, since we're here... I find it weird that Suarez's page has more votes than Messi's page in just a couple of days. Guess people aren't really interested in Messi's height. What do you think Rob? Any chance he might go for 168cm? That would mean his ex-teammate Xavi is likely 167cm and Iniesta is 170cm.

Ben said on 5/Sep/16
It's funny when people say he took HGH to grow taller as if that turned him into a talented footballer. Watch videos of him when he was young and you would see that he had the talent.

He didn't use growth hormones to grow taller, but to maximize his genetical peak. Without that he would've been like 4'11" or shorter since he was diagnosed with growth hormone defficiency. Look up pics with his brothers, and his dad. They're all in the 5'5"-5'7" range, so that's his family background.

Arguably the GOAT, I don't even support his team but I enjoy watching their games because of the way he plays.
Rollo Tomasi said on 5/Sep/16
169 isn't abnormaly short. It's just as common as 191 cm if the average height is 180 cm (which it is in northern Europe and among the white population in USA etc.)

@james B "adversity to become arguably the best player in the world". I doubt it. Messi hasn't scored any goal in this year pre-season. Today Cristiano is better than Messi. And Bale. Most importanly, both of them are taller than him.
James B said on 8/Aug/16
This guy has achieved SO MUCH in his life so far and yet it fustrates me when I see spiteful comments on the Internet about his height.

The poor guy can't help his height because of his childhood hormonal problems and despite that has overcome adversity to become arguably the best player in the world . Although I guess perhaps bleaching his hair blonde and getting loads of tattoos he is just begging for people to take the piss like he is trying be David Beckham or something.

I am not a fan of soccer but just think that Messi doesn't deserve flack for his stature.

@Appe 6ft 0.5 Are you serious? Xavi was measured at 168.5 morning and forcing a bit and Messi is similar or 1 cm taller

He looks much too short next to Hazard (5'7), Lahm (~5'7) and Neymar (5'8.25) to be over 5ft 6 flat.
Probs 5ft 7 out of bed and this is what he goes with nowadays.

Hey Rob, how tall do you think this guy is next to Messi? He's listed as 170cm but Messi clearly edges him at 169cm.
Maybe 166cm or something like that?

Rob is a downgrade to 5'6 possible in the future for messi?
Editor Rob: I think he can still be a 169 guy, I'm not sure as low as 168 for him.

@Magic Xavi was measured live at 168-168,5 cm. And Messi is taller tan him. 169,5 sounds reasonable at 10-12 am
Magic said on 8/Feb/16
Messi has always been in adult age 168-169 today on wikipedia is 170. I begin to think that they claim their height and they aren't measured! An example Veratti(165) and Insigne(163 cm ) but Veratti compared to him , is taller at least 2 inches. I believe that some clubs measured others no.
How is it possible,Rob?
