Leo Messi has also wanted to show his condolences for the death of former soccer player and commentator Michael Robinson, who lost his life after failing to overcome a cancer detected in 2018.
The Argentine player has shared a story on Instagram with an image of the Brit and a small message: “QEPD” (May He Rest In Peace).
Robinson always praised the Barça Striker and assured that “Messi is far above any other footballer that I have seen. He is even better than Maradona. Diego had three magnificent seasons. He made Naples and Argentina a champion, but Leo Messi does every season since his debut. Cristiano Ronaldo is unlucky to live in a stage in which Messi reigns. We are facing something unique.”
Along with Messi’s words, there have also been many signs of affection both for Barcelona and for a large part of football and society.
The president of FC Barcelona, Josep Maria Bartomeu, published a tweet recalling the figure in English: “The world of soccer is left a little more orphaned by your loss. Thank you for sharing with us your vision of soccer and your way of being, sensitivity and intelligence. Rest in peace, Michael Robinson.”
