Argentina player, Leandro Paredes has come out to say that winning the Copa America made Messi really happy. He recently revealed that he had never seen the Barcelona forward as happy as he was when the trophy was won.
According to him, it was clear that the players and the 45 million Argentines wanted Leo to lift a title with the Argentine national team that night.
Paredes added that playing his role to make Messi‘s dream come true was simply incredible.
His words, “Not just us, but the 45 million Argentines wanted Leo to lift a title with the Argentine national team.”
“Then, to contribute something to make it happen and to be there enjoying it with him was incredible.”
“I’ve never seen Messi so happy and much less for 45 days. He really enjoyed being with us. It was like a graduation trip where we had a lot of fun.”
“We won, because we did it against everyone, and we reached the final. For us, it was a really incredible Copa America, a dream come true.”
On him, Messi and Neymar, “We are not talking about the final. We talked about how we were doing, how the family was doing, what we were going to do on vacation and what we had done in these 45 days. It was more of something else than the final itself.”
“With that you realise the kind of people the two (Messi and Neymar) are. Beyond being stars, they have the humility to sit down after such an important final and talk about other things.”
