Why Manchester United Have A Picture Of Messi In Their Dressing Room

Inspiration, maybe?




It has been reported that Premier League giants Manchester United have a picture of Barcelona captain Lionel Messi in their dressing room at Old Trafford.

It was first mentioned in a 2018 Times article about Scott McTominay and his rise to become a first-team player at United.

Among other things, the article said:

Scott McTominay still leaves his car round the front at Carrington, rather than in the first-team car park at the back. Academy hopefuls note this too. They also see Paul Pogba strolling over to greet his old coaches. They understand the dedication and humility required to make it at Manchester United.”

The article, written by award-winning journalist Henry Winter, revealed that the Red Devils dressing room has a picture of Messi cleaning his boots after Argentina’s clash with Croatia at Upton Park in 2014.

The image is meant to serve as a reminder to remain grounded no matter how far a player goes in his career. If a five-time Ballon d’Or winner still cleans his own boots, United players can also adopt a similar practice in humility.

Messi is currently enjoying a spectacular season, having led Barcelona to the top of La Liga and the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League—where they will face Manchester United on April 10.

Now that promises to be a game for the ages!
