A champion on the pitch is a champion off it as well.
Lionel Messi has shown through his classy interview that he will forever be a winner regardless of football.
“Inequality is one of the great problems of our society and we must fight to correct it as soon as possible. It is key, for those who need it most, to preserve water, electricity, and basic food in this situation.
“The glasses that are raised at the end of this year should be for all the people involved in helping those who are most in need of it.”, said Messi.
After going through (and continuing) a wonderful career, Messi is clear that education is key: “Education is the basis of development of a youngster.”
The 33-year-old was born and raised in a poor environment, and recalled: “At that time, I could not have even imagined how far those initial steps would take me.”
Messi also spoke about the bad situation in Argentina due to Coronavirus.
“What we Argentines are experiencing is very difficult. We wanted to bring joy to the people with this victory. I send a lot of strength to all of Argentina because I know it is a very difficult moment.”, he said.
