A statue of Messi will be erected next to statues of Pele and Maradona, icons of South American football, in Asuncion, Paraguay, where the headquarters of the South American Football Confederation is located.
Messi said at the event that day, “It’s something I never dreamed of. Football was simply what I liked and enjoyed since I was a child. Even after becoming a professional player,” he said. “I always tried to improve, and there were many disappointments and defeats in the process of wanting more, but I always looked forward to it. I always wanted to go for the win, and that’s the most important thing.” He continued, “Fighting for your dreams, thinking that everything is possible, and enjoying it is the most beautiful thing for all of us,” leaving a message of dreams and challenges. 온라인바카라
