In a bid to turn football on its head, Adidas are asking us to unfollow Leo Messi… and make our own history in the beautiful game.
“Is he even human?”
It’s a question we’ve all asked whilst watching Leo Messi in full swing. The insane dribbles, the pin point turns, shot accuracy that could knock a cat off a wall from 40 paces… it’s what we’ve come to expect from a 4 time ballon d’Or winner who has dominated the football scene for the past 10 years. Adidas have been behind the greatest player ever from the very beginning, and that’s no different now. Except this time they’re asking us to unfollow Messi?
Adidas want you to create your own history. This isn’t them binning off their biggest sporting asset. No. It’s about setting the challenge to the next generation of football manager wonderkids, and asking them to make waves their own way. Watch the video above and be inspired.”
No one ever created anything new by trying to be someone else. Leo Messi, the greatest player in the history of football, challenges you to make your own path and unfollow him in pursuit of creating your own game.
Four time winner of the Ballon d’Or, Messi, adored and followed by fans all over the world, has received the highest accolades from those both inside and outside the game. But football has changed and Lionel Messi has challenged the next generation of players. Don’t consider Messi your hero, consider him your competition.
The game played on streets, pitches and parks across the world is about making your own impact, about seeing what you want and taking it. Try and learn how to play like Messi, but then go out and create something new.”
