THE football star, Lionel Messi says he wants to finish his career and win something with the national team or try as many times as possible, not to be left with people who did not want him or bad comments against him.
Messi says, “That’s life,” he said. “You stumble but you get back up and fight for your dreams.
“Getting up, trying again, is the message for children who like to watch me.
The Barcelona star also said that his children have helped him learn to overcome the pain of defeat on the football pitch because there are more important things in life.
Messi, the father of three sons with wife Antonella – Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.
“The defeats hurt but I deal with them in another way,” he told FOX Sports Argentina.
“When Thiago was born [in 2012] I understood that the priorities are different and not just the result of a game.
“It hurts a lot to lose but I get to my house and I see my children and my wife and it passes.
“Before that, I came home and I locked myself up and I did not want to watch TV and I did not eat.
“Now I have a duty to be at the table with my children. I still suffer but I handle it in another way.”
A vintage Messi performance helped put one Barcelona boot in the Champions League final against Liverpool, but he was powerless to prevent the comeback at Anfield as the Barca defence crumbled and teammates missed chances.
After a similar collapse against Roma in the same competition last season, Messi could be forgiven for thinking Barcelona were cursed, according to GOAL.com
But after seven years of raising his children, he knows the example he has to set.
