7. Lionel Messi and Jose Manuel Pinto
Every Barcelona and Messi fan knows how much respect and admiration these two have for each other. And it’s not just for the game and their playing quality, but it also has to do with their humility and lifestyle on a whole, and that’s what makes them so close to each other.
They are so close that Messi wanted the Catalan club to first offer an extension to Pinto before he would even consider an extension for himself. This coming from a man who has vowed to play for Barcelona shows the extent they are willing to go for each other.
