Is Lionel Messi Can Comeback?
This year, 2018 has been wonderful for most of the footballers comprising Kylian Mbappe, Raphael Varane, Luka Modric and Antoine Griezmann. While these football superstars were enjoying their success at club and international levels, some evergreen superstars have been forgotten. One of the biggest superstar of football as well as captain of Barcelona, Lionel Messi was also among those who were forgotten this year.
Messi’s massive hard work throughout the foregoing campaign saw him lead Barcelona to entitle both titles such as the LaLiga title and the Copa del Rey trophy. With his 34 goals and 12 assists, he also ended as the best prolific goal scorer through the European leagues for Barcelona in 36 LaLiga arrivals. It was to a certain extent was clear that he was disregarded when the time for credit attained. This year he was misplaced on the closing pick out of all of UEFA, FIFA and Ballon d’Or awards.
Such an insult and humiliation to the champion of football who is 5-time Ballon d’Or winner is not acceptable. It also don’t require a second thought to realize that Messi will prove them his talent and ability once again. Hence, here are some of the highlights Messi must do in order to reclaim his importance and ability in the world of football.
Messi required to show himself once again in Europe’s elite tournament
Barcelona has failed to win the Europe’s elite tournament from past 3 years. It is now become very important for Messi to win the UEFA Champions League once again. This is another way to bring his ignored and lost superstar image in the coming season.
Messi has also assured Barcelona supporters that he would do the whole thing to bring the Champions League trophy next season. Though, he required to make sure that he would come out with an exclusive performance to bring his team to the top once more.
Messi must endure with his supremacy in the Spanish top flight
There is no disbelief that Lionel Messi has been overlooking the LaLiga for the previous few years, unmistakably ripping the division separately with his collective 71 goals and 21 assists within the last 2 seasons. That is essentially one of the things he required to carry on in order to recover his lost stature.
This summer, Cristiano Ronaldo has also left the Spanish top flight for the Serie A. It would be easier for Argentine to leave an impact, when there is no current superstar in the division.
As a result, in order to regain his position on top of the football world this season, Lionel Messi must grab the chance and keep up with his leading demonstrations in the Spanish division.
He also needs to win the popular Ballon d’Or award once again
Lionel Messi from his early stage of career started getting many awards such as FIFA Ballon d’Or/Ballon d’Or, European Golden Shoe, FIFA World Player of the Year, FIFA World Cup Golden Ball, Copa América Golden Ball, UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award, UEFA Club Footballer of the Year, UEFA Club Forward of the Year, Onze d’Or and many more.
Messi has won FIFA Ballon d’Or from 2009 to 2012 as well as in 2015 too. But since then he has not won Ballon d’Or award. The most awful part is that the Argentine was even unsuccessful to make the ultimate shortlist for the award this year. This lead to humiliation to his legacy and well managed reputation.
As a result, Lionel Messi needs to work hard and give his best to win the respected and significant prize for his club as well as his nation in every competition to make him and his country as well as his team proud. This will also result in bringing up his image which is right now being ignored.
