Argentina is thinking of celebrating their national football team captain Lionel Messi with having his image on their banknotes. The move is expected to celebrate Messi for his achievements as a decorated star who has brought Argentina fame.
According to El Financiero, a local newspaper in Argentina, there are plans to make Messi even greater by having his image on banknotes. The move is expected to make the great footballer immortal. Argentine government is considering to make the proposal a reality to continue celebrating Messi as an icon in the country.
Argentina is a footballing nation and great footballers are usually celebrated to motivate young and upcoming players to continue developing their talents. Before Messi took the Word Cup, Diego Maradona was celebrated as the greatest footballer to ever be born in Argentina.
Messi’s recent success puts him in the same league with Diego Maradona who won Argentines World Cup 36 years ago. Maradona’s success will no longer cloud Messi’s and now it is Messi’s time to shine.
If Argentina continues with their move, Messi will have his image on the pesos notes which are used by Argentines.
