Lionel Messi the greatest footballer of all time,He was accepted into FC Barcelona at the age of 13.Messi worked hard and ignored the criticisms from those who thought he couldn't make it.According to him "it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success" Today Lionel Messi ranks 3rd amongs FC Barcelona players. #Messi has always been a great mentor to many because of his determination and focus on his goals.He also loves to put others first before himself,he set up a foundation to help sick kids and also provide their basic needs.
Yesterday wasn't a good day for the #legend,as his dream of winning the champion's league for the fifth time was abolished.#Barcelona was defeated by Liverpool 4-0 at Anfield. This made the legend broke down in tear at the Barcelona dressing room. It was reported that Messi couldn't go with his team coach to the airport as he was selected for a drug test by anti-doping officials.Messi finally arrived at the airport and was involved in an angry confrontation by some Barcelona fans who were not impressed by the performance of the #football star. This was one of the most humiliating nights for Barcelona in it's history. The society tend to focus and celebrate only the success of a person and turn their back during their dark moments of failure.We are all designed to learn from trial and error, Lionel Messiis not an exception.
