The Afghan boy Murtaza Ahmadi became an Internet star a few months ago. Pictures, where the boy wore a homemade shirt bearing Messi's number 10, were spreading around the web at an unbelievable speed.

"Messi's biggest fan", five-year-old Murtaza Ahmadi, dreamed about meeting his idol, and famous football player sent a little present to him.

One of Messi's managers notified that the entire football team sent “a signed Argentina shirt and football from the Barcelona forward!” to the young adherent.

"I love Messi and my shirt says Messi loves me," Murtaza said, already improving his own goal celebration.

“I want to become like him (Messi),” the boy added.

The boy's father, a farmer from Ghazni, said that he never saw his son in 'this' condition before.

Azim Ahmadi, Murtaza's uncle, also told, "Little champion is finally extremely happy".

Managers of Barcelona are doing their best to coordinate the meeting of the little boy and his idol.

The date and the venue are not confirmed yet, but there are chances of Ahmadi flying to Spain to meet his football hero.
