The “Great” Leo Messi turned 30 a little while ago and it feels like I have been watching him wiggle his magic past defenders and scoring incredible goals for such a long time. I often tell people that we as football fans are so lucky to be able to watch the brilliance of the Argentine wizard on a weekly basis.
In saying the above, it bothers me that there are haters out there who have bad things to say about him, trash him and whatever else. Really? Are you being serious? Have you even kicked a ball in your life? If you did you wouldn’t be a hater; you would shut up and realize that some of the moves he does on the football pitch is nothing less than remarkable.
When the number 10 has the ball at his feet and is running at defenders humiliating them, just ask “Jarome Boateng”. All I can say is, “wow, please keep this guy playing forever. “
Where would football be the last 13-years without Messi? Would Barcelona even be half the team they are today without Messi? One doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out the answer.
Haters, do yourselves a favour and read this article for some of the best stats of Messi’s remarkable career. Also look at how it has progressed year by year. Read it and weep.
For the record, I am Portuguese and the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo is my FAVOURITE current player. As a football fanatic, it’s been fantastic to have Messi in the mix as well. It can only help football remain the most played and popular game in the world.
Messi please never retire!!! And never forget that CR7 is still better than you LOL…
