Hello "Maestro" @stephencurry30, well as I told you, here I’m sending you my jersey with the number 10. It’s an honour that you have my jersey and it’s a pleasure to see you playing. I hope to see you playing for a many more years and I wish you all the success. Big hug!

Curry is a long-time admirer of the five-time World Footballer of the Year and sent the Argentine a signed Warriors number 30 shirt when Messi reached 30 million followers back in December.
"As I promised I would, I'm sending you my shirt to celebrate you reaching 10 million followers on Instagram," Messi posted on his official Facebook page on Sunday. "It's an honour for me to be able to share my jersey with you and it's always a pleasure to watch you play. I hope to see you play for many more years to come and wish you all the success."
