Inspirational quotes by Lionel Messi:
Brave: I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I’d have to make a lot of sacrifices. I made sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. I changed my friends, my people. Everything. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream.
Sincere: There are more important things in life than winning or losing a game.
Humble: Sometimes you have to accept you can’t win all the time.
Happy: I have fun like a child in the street. When the day comes when I’m not enjoying it, I will leave football.
Sympathetic: For my part, I try to do my bit to make people’s lives more bearable, in particular children across the globe who are having problems.
Familiar: Nah, I’ve always had a great relationship with my two brothers, I have always had their support in my football and in everything. They’ve been very close to me and we have a great relationship.
And above all a decent guy: I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else. I’m more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? When I retire, I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy.
