They say, the true character of a man shows up during their weakest moments. Today as Cristiano broke the smartphone of a teenage fan who was trying to record the players following a defeat against Everton! I was reminded of this moment which has, for many years been a reference for me.
After Argentina were defeated by Chile in the Copa América 2015 final in the penalty shootout, a young boy who was a rival Chilean supporter, approached to Leo for a selfie while the Argentine was heartbroken on the field. The great man obliged as the boy proceeded to put his arms around his waist and click the selfie.
Messi is peerless in his capabilities as a footballer but he’s way more than just that. He’s someone who always sets the right examples. One of the many reasons I adore and admire him most. This particular example, stayed with me during my difficult days and I’ll always use this as a reference point on conducting myself during difficult moments in life 🙏❤️
