A famous archaeologist made this discovery in the Saqqara necropolis and found remains of someone who shared the same surname as the “flea”.
Lionel Messi, apparently had a namesake that lived in ancient Egypt thousands of years ago. The PSG striker’s surname has been present in this world since ancient times and was found in the African country by a group of archaeologists who found a mummy in the Saqqara necropolis. The author of this discovery was Zahi Hawass.
The discoverer explained that what was found was more than 4,000 million years old. It had some remains and a sarcophagus that is intact.
“I stuck my head in to see what was inside the sarcophagus: a beautiful mummy of a man, completely covered in layers of gold,” Hawass said.
“In the same area where we found the nine statues, there was a false door. This door belongs to a specific Messi: not the one from Argentina who won the World Cup, but another Messi. This Messi lived about 4,300 years ago. From this we can conclude that the statues belong to the man named Messi,” he added.
