Messi-mad Miss BumBum became enchanted by star after befriending Ronaldinho

Lionel Messi superfan Miss BumBum has revealed where her love of the Argentina star first stemmed from.

Miss BumBum – real name Suzy Cortez – is one of Messi's biggest supporters. The 32-year-old regularly posts on social media about the PSG forward and even has a tattoo of the former Barcelona man's face on her abodmen.

Speaking last year, she revealed that the ink makes "men fail at the right time." And now, talking exclusively to Daily Star Sport, the Brazilian beauty has opened up on where her admiration for Messi first started – and it involved a little help from Ronaldinho.

She said: "When I went to study in Spain, I chose Castelldefels in Barcelona to live there, I became friends with Ronaldinho who lived in the same place, it was at that time that I started to follow Barcelona and the beginning of Messi's career.

"I was a teenager and I was enchanted by the magical football I saw in training and games. That's when my story with the greatest player in football history began."

Do you think Argentina will go all the way in Qatar? Let us know in the comments section.

Miss BumBum displays her love for Messi in a variety of ways, most notably via the medium of tattoos. The bombshell beauty has seven bits of ink dedicated to the Barcelona legend – and she's got more in the pipeline.

She told us: "I have a total of seven tattoos in honour of Messi; I entered the Guinness World Records. When I got the intimate tattoo, some people were shocked but little by little they understood why I got the tattoo.

"I intend to get a tattoo identical to the one Messi has on his leg with the ball and the No10."

And that's not all, because Miss BumBum is promising to get a "super tattoo" if Argentina go all the way in Qatar. That won't be easy, though, as Lionel Scaloni's side need to overcome the Netherlands before a potential semi-final with Croatia or Brazil.

If they make it all the way to the final, one of England, France, Morocco or Portugal will lay in wait.
