Attilico de MadridTOThe Argentine and the Brazilian have staged great duels in their clashes
They have been on the lawn for a decade. First, whenFilipe Luisbegan to win in the Deportivo fame that led him to be considered one of the best left-handed side of the world, to be up to the prestige of the best Marcelo. Then, when the Attico (except for the year in which he went to the Chelsea and then return home) I confi in him to be an outstanding member of the hard core of the Cholismo. In both stages he has had to measure himself, suffer, annul and be expelled by the intimate enemy of which he is dismissed today at the Camp Nou. We speak, of course LeoMessi, with which it will not be possible to face at least the red and white elstica.
Brazilian and Argentine, with what that already means of rivalry, maintain a good relationship that, in any case, has suffered its ups and downs. Especially in 2017, when after being sent off in a match against Barcelona, he had no doubts in attacking the Argentine:"Messi is the protege of the League and the press"I complainFilipeconsidering that the red came from being involved the Argentine, which is not measured equal to the other players.
A touch that two years later is already forgotten. In fact, Filipe was clear – as football players usually are not – after the last Golden Ball:"If he's not the best in the world, I do not understand anything, my rivalry with him is infinite in the field, but outside my admiration is also infiting"said the 3 to show his surprise at the prize awarded to Modric and where Messi was not even among the first three (Cristiano, second, and Griezmann, third, completed the podium).
In any case,today's be a farewell. Filipe does not renew with Attico and lives his last eight matches as rojiblanco. Vital player during the best years of Simeone (his role the year of the conquest of LaLiga was key), the Brazilian ended up in his relationship with the club after his attempt to leave for PSG last summer. The relationship, until then excellent, it gets muddied to the point that there is no going back in the future of a soccer player who today re-measure himself again with Messi, his intimate enemy. The same who does not care to consider a privileged to say that he is the best in the world without discussion. And is that his admiration is "infinite."
