If the Qatar World Cup finally achieved the title of Messi, it can only be said that in the world, people’s respect for the individual is far more than that for the team. Even if everyone will admit that individual is based on the team, but the public for extremely individual personal heroism of advocating is obviously not based on this theory based .
Messi has achieved a grand Slam
In previous posts, I have dissected the extreme Stein theory of soccer thinking about players like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. [Interested fans are welcome to follow Tang Bohu on headline and check out the original articles in the series on October 23, 2022.8.4.]
One of the main reasons for this is that when a person’s value in his field is far higher than that of other excellent people, that person automatically becomes the most extreme.La Liga score results.
Messi has won everything in his career, but that has to do with the whole team, especially the entire Argentina team in Qatar, working hard to make Messi the king of the game.
Such a mindset, full of personality cults, is at odds with the modern trajectory of European football.
In Portugal, Sanchez worked hard to create a team that didn’t need Cristiano Ronaldo, which essentially led to all the players thinking they could be the new Cristiano Ronaldo.
It is a fact that Messi has won everything at Barca that the club can win, as well as his own super-status, and it is clear that he has done so on the basis of the overall football set-up at the height of Barcelona’s success. This is not like the situation at the club of Maradona, the second-generation king, who really did it all on his own much of the time. Even if I’m a Messi fan, I have to admit it.
By the same token, Argentina’s team worked together to win the World Cup for the first time in 36 years in Qatar, and Messi is the logical third generation champion.
This was not just the victory Argentina needed, but the moment when all of South America had to introduce a new king.
Although it lags behind European soccer in terms of industrial system, South American soccer, full of individuality, has always had a signature star of its own at different times.
European football has modernised ahead of South American football for years, and the gap is still widening. But what matters to South Americans, who worship individualism, is not the absence of a system but whether they have a king of their own, such as Maradona once did or Pele in the past.
Why, some say, is European football so generous in awarding the third-generation king tag to Messi instead of any other European player? The answer is simply that mainstream football centres care less about who they are than where they play. It is with this very generous philosophy that European football has been able to develop and improve as it has.
Writing here, I have to mention Cristiano Ronaldo. In fact, the Portuguese superstar is very likely to be king, but he is too publicizing the style of doing things let him offend too many people, but also led to his step wrong and step by step wrong ending.
