How can you hate Messi when he’s balls are so big
Daniele De Rossi has moved to defend Lionel Messi against those who criticise him in his own country.
Argentines often accuse the forward of failing to perform on the biggest stage because he hasn’t delivered a trophy for the national team, but De Rossi disputed that.
“How are you going to say anything against Messi when he has balls that big?” De Rossi explained in an interview with La Nacion.
“There are people who have the courage to criticise Messi from behind a computer screen.
“However, they don’t even have the balls to ask their wife if they can control the TV remote.”
Messi’s international career has been marked by key defeats in finals of both the Copa America and the World Cup, yet De Rossi believes this is unfair.
“He lost two Copa America finals on penalties and I’m a World Champion because of penalties,” he added.
“He is castigated in Argentina and yet I’m a hero in Italy along with my teammates for winning the 2006 World Cup.
“What’s the difference? Maybe five centimetres.
“I just don’t agree with that.
“I would like to remind people just how many times it was Messi that carried the entire team on his back.”
