Italian World Champions hails Messi's fighting spirit

Former Roma captain Daniele De Rossi has hailed Lionel Messi.

Messi, is often considered the best player to ever play the game but there are also plenty of questions about his temperament to deliver when it matters and fight against the odds. 

De Rossi has put a stopper to those baseless questions with a perfectly explained answer about Messi’s mental strength. 

“How can you say Messi lacks passion, he has bigger b*lls than everyone else. There are people who have the courage to say Messi lacks passion behind a computer and then don’t even have the guts to ask his wife for the TV remote to change the channel.”, said De Rossi.

“He lost two Copa America finals on penalties, and I’m a world champion on penalties. Look, he’s a cold-blooded man in Argentina and I’m a hero along with my team-mates for winning the 2006 World Cup. And what’s the difference? Five centimeters. I would like to remind you that he carries the whole team on his back.”
“There’s nothing more to explain in football terms, no more words. There are others who are very good, like Ronaldo, who can be compared in terms of numbers, goals, and trophies, but then there is a question of pleasure, and I like to see Messi.”
