Steve Heighway

At 6 my parents guided me towards supporting Liverpool and specifically this amazing new Irish player: Steve Heighway

He was a fantastic role model and I hope my kids find role models as powerful.

In Messi, I believe they have found just that model – and its about a lot more than soccer.

Messi’s personality and lifestyle are in marked contrast to so many of the flashy trashy people in sport today.

I have no doubt that at 63, like Heighway, Messi will be a valuable part of his industry and a good man.

That’s all I hope for my two sons.
