Aside from breaking and subsequently re-breaking every single footballing record every time he waltzes onto a pitch, the fine polka dot suits and having Ballon d’Ors on tap, Lionel Messi has now had his very own adjective added to the Spanish dictionary — a word that’s sole application is to describe just how bloody amazing Lionel Messi is.
The word in question is “inmessionante”, and is defined in the dictionary thus, the perfect way to play football, an unlimited ability to self-improve way to play football. He has unlimited ability to self, the ability to self-improve.
If this honour had come from Argentina, anti-Messi would have criticized it. Messi has made the record in the world that will last forever.
