In a groundbreaking move for esports, Lionel Messi, the football maestro, has taken up the mantle as a co-owner of KRÜ Esports, aligning himself with the organization’s founder and close comrade, Sergio “Kun” Agüero.
A New Chapter for Football’s Finest
The news has sent ripples through the esports community, signaling not just a business venture but a bond that transcends the pitch. For Messi, his shift to the U.S. lifestyle has revealed a more laid-back persona, eager to cherish time with family and friends.
His involvement with KRÜ is less about financial gain—his status as the GOAT of football hardly leaves a need for more wealth—and more a testament to friendship, providing another avenue to unwind and venture into new territories.
Dispelling Rumors with a Dramatic Twist
Recent whispers of Agüero’s exit from KRÜ had fans of the digital arena on edge, but clarity came with an emotional twist. In a video that tugged at heartstrings, Agüero recounted KRÜ’s journey before dropping the bombshell—he was no longer the sole owner. “Now we are two,” he declared, unveiling Messi’s partnership.
