LIONEL MESSI ended his World Cup-winning year alongside his stunning wife Antonella and their three kids at their Rosario mansion with a water slide.

The legendary footballer, 35, captained Argentina to their third-ever World Cup in December.

Messi scored seven goals and assisted three in Qatar, including a brace in the dramatic final win over France.

Argentina’s 26 heroes, and staff, then returned home and were met by millions of fans.

But before returning to Europe to rejoin his club, Paris Saint-Germain, Messi saw out 2022 in his hometown of Rosario in his mansion that has a waterslide, alongside stunning wife Antonella and three kids Mateo, Thiago and Ciro.

They also enjoyed family parties while back in town.

Messi will hope of more goals, assists and trophies in 2023.

He is just 26 goals behind long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who has played 142 more games.

Ronaldo’s Champions League goal-scoring records are also up for grabs.

Messi is trailing the Al-Nassr newboy by 11 goals.

And a Champions League win in May alongside Kylian Mbappe and Co would see Messi lift his fifth European title.

A Ligue 1 title win before that would see Messi draw level with former Barcelona team-mate Dani Alves as the most decorated footballer in history.

Messi is also one of the favourites for the Ballon d’Or, which would be his eighth golden ball.
