Lionel Messi doesn’t care if you’re offended by his awesomeness, Real Madrid fans. He wanted to make sure you knew that after his goal won the latest El Clasico for Barcelona at the Bernabeu on Sunday evening. After striking his left-footed match-winner past Keylor Navas, he sprinted to the endline, took off his iconic kit, and made sure everyone in the vicinity of him could see it. Watch it:
“Say my name.” - Lionel Messi, probably.
There’s no telling what type of abuse was yelled at him from the stands during the match. And we all saw the physical abuse he took from Marcelo’s elbow and Sergio Ramos’ studs on the pitch. This was his way to show everyone that nothing will be able to keep him down and he’s always going to get back up and prove that he’s the best there is, best the was, and the best there ever will be.
What a man. What a player. A true legend of the sport.
