ഡീഗോ വേ… ലയണല്‍ റേ…

ഒരു സംഘം നല്ല കളിക്കാരും ഒരു പിടി വളരെ നല്ല കളിക്കാരും ലയണല്‍ മെസ്സി എന്നി ലോകത്തെ മികച്ച കളിക്കാരനും ചേര്‍ന്ന ഫുട്ബാള്‍ ടീമാണ് അര്‍ജന്റീന. ഏതൊരു ടീമിന്റെയും നിലവാരമുയര്‍ത്താന്‍ മെസ്സിക്കാവും. നേതൃപാടവത്തെ കുറിച്ച് ഡീഗോ മാറഡോണ പറഞ്ഞത് ഓര്‍ത്തുപോവുന്നു. ഒരു വ്യക്തി പ്രകടിപ്പിക്കുന്ന ധൈര്യമോ, ചിലപ്പോള്‍ അയാളുടെ സാന്നിദ്ധ്യം തന്നെയോ നേതൃഗുണമായി മാറാറുണ്ടെന്നാണ് ഡീഗോ പറഞ്ഞത്. സ്വന്തം അനുഭവമായിരിക്കാം അദ്ദേഹത്തെക്കൊണ്ട് അതു പറയിച്ചത്. മെസ്സിക്ക് ഈ ഗുണമുണ്ടെന്നും ഡീഗോ പറഞ്ഞിരുന്നു. പക്ഷേ, എന്റെ നോട്ടത്തില്‍ മെസ്സി എന്തായാലും മാറഡോണയല്ല.

One thought on “ഡീഗോ വേ… ലയണല്‍ റേ…

  1. There was a recent news that Maradona told Pele that Messi lacks leadership to carry a team. http://www.espn.in/football/argentina/story/2889220/diego-maradona-says-lionel-messi-lacks-leadership-to-carry-a-team

    As you said it doesn’t matter. Both are geniuses, in their own merit. Different circumstances that cannot be compared, but will always be compared.

    One point of view still – I guess Messi is more of introverted character, great at what he does, but emotionally grounded (like he doesn’t react every time he is pushed to the ground, doesn’t get animated – except few occasions where the anger flared up). He is highly respected by his team mates and opponents (going by even the reply to Maradona by some of the other footballers), but respecting someone and following someone could be different.

    It may be like what happened when Sachin took up India captaincy. He was not natural at that i guess. He left that to someone else and concentrated on what he does best.

    Captaincy in football may be different from Cricket in amount of decisions to be taken by the captain on field. But inspiring people to give their best could be an attribute that maybe missing.

    As you said, somehow us Malayalis want him to win a cup with Argentina and seal his place among the greatest. Chile may still play spoilsport the way they are going – it is their golden generation now and clicking as a team. But hope it happens this time for Argentina and Messi.
