They were friends since childhood
Messi and Antonela are both Rosario natives. Since the age of five, they had been friends. She was a friend of Messi’s cousin, and despite her introverted demeanor, the striker frequently visited her house to meet her. Messi moved to Barcelona to pursue his footballing dreams in 2007 but still returned home to console Antonela after a friend of his died in a car crash. Since then, the two have been dating.
Roccuzzo chose to continue his graduate studies in dentistry while obtaining his bachelor’s degree in humanities and social sciences. However, she decided to leave school early to be near Messi, who was living in Barcelona.
