Apple TV+ announces new Messi documentary

This Streaming Platform is Releasing a New Messi Documentary

Get ready for a new exclusive look into the life of the living football legend, Lionel Messi, with this new documentary in the works.

Now that Ted Lasso has reportedly released its third and final season, Apple TV+ is giving football fans a new reason to stay tuned to their platform as they have just recently announced that a new documentary series about football legend Lionel Messi is in the works!

The service said the four-part series would feature “exclusive behind-the-scenes access” to the football megastar, who scored seven goals as Argentina lifted the World Cup in Qatar in December.

“In his own words, Messi tells the definitive story of his incredible career with the Argentina national football team, providing an intimate and unprecedented look at his quest for a legacy-defining World Cup victory,” Apple TV+ said in a statement.

No broadcast date was given for the documentary, which will be produced by Smuggler Entertainment and was filmed in Paris, Qatar, and Argentina.

The series will retrace Messi’s international career, starting with his debut for Argentina in 2005 when he was sent off two minutes after coming on as a substitute and including defeat in the 2014 World Cup final.

It will culminate with the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s lifting of football’s ultimate prize last year at his fifth World Cup.

Messi, 35, left Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month following two seasons in which he scored 32 goals in 75 appearances and won two Ligue 1 titles.

He has not announced which club side he will play for next, with reports and a source close to the negotiations suggesting he could soon sign a lucrative contract to play in Saudi Arabia.
