What do you think about this man?

As human beings, we have the tendency to link up things even when there is little or no resemblance. When we see, hear or feel something, we attach something or someone to it without even putting in an effort.

For example, if you hear someone’s name, you instantly have a flurry of thoughts in your head – those thoughts are precisely what you associate with that person. So what happens when that person is Lionel Messi?

Ah, well, a bit tough this one, isn’t it? What do I think when I hear the name of Lionel Messi… a lot of things, to be honest. He is, after all, one of the finest players of all time. There, I have already mentioned one of the things that come to my mind.

And here are 5 of them…

#5 Impulsive

If I wrote this slider a couple of years ago, I wouldn’t have had this on my list. However, after Lionel Messi decided to retire from the Argentina national team after failing to win the final of the Copa America in 2016, this is one of the things that pops up in my mind when the Argentine finds a place in it.

Messi is a man who loves his national team more than anything. It is for this reason that he was seen crying after losing the final of the Copa America final last year. The frustration of losing was such that he actually decided to quit the national team right then and there.

Of course, it was a result of a combination of events that had Messi’s head spinning – a reaction of impulse that had anger and sadness for its root. After a few months, however, the Argentina captain made a return to the national team and has been playing with them ever since.
