Messi shows off star-studded shirt collection, including Aguero, Suarez, Totti and Toure.

 

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, he showed off his sizable collection of kits, which include jerseys from Sergio Aguero, Iker Casillas, Thierry Henry, Francesco Totti and other stars of the game.

Messi showed off his ensemble in a social media post on Tuesday, with some of the top names in the game represented on the walls, and in the floor and ceiling, of his memorabilia room.

In total, there are 70 different shirts in the picture shared by Messi on Instagram, though it's likely the room houses many, many more.

Which is all pretty remarkable considering the 29-year-old openly claims to not be naturally inclined to swapping shirts after a game.

 

Swapping shirts after the game is an age-old tradition in football, showing appreciation and respect, although Messi has revealed recently it’s something he rarely indulges in.

The Argentine revealed recently, to Spanish publication Invictos, that the only player he has ever asked for a shirt from was Zinedine Zidane.

'I don't ask for shirts. If there is an Argentine, I will swap with an Argentine,' he told Invictus.

'If not and there is someone else that asks me, I will swap it with them. If not, I do not look and do not ask.

'I asked, once…I asked (Zinedine) Zidane.'

Despite his reluctance to pick up matchday souvenirs, he's obviously proud of his collection.

And why not.

It does put your dozen mix-and-match Premier League strips from the late 1990s into perspective, after all.
