Just imagine if you are Lionel Messi , Cristiano Ronaldo or Robin van Persie . What do you think will happen if you did not score any goal in a match ? If your team wins , that is fine . But if your team loses , I bet the next few days will be a nightmare for you . Just imagine , getting the highest weekly paycheck , getting a lot of assists from fellow teammates but unable to score the goal .
The situation can get even stickier if you are Tito Vilanova , Jose Mourinho or Sir Alex Ferguson . Just imagine , you fielded a team worthy of the nickname " DREAM TEAM " , played in the home stadium , but still could not win the match . One thing for sure , mass media and millions of loyal supporters around the world will be talking about it for some time . This drama could be ended with you getting sacked from the club .
But , on the contrary , if you proved to be the goal scoring machine , scoring at least a goal in every match , the whole world will cheer on you . Just imagine , supporters will be chanting your name in the stadium , guys started to dress like you , girls willing to die just to be your girlfriend . This situation might look favourable to you in the next few days . But , after some time , this " instant fame " can get on your nerves . You will be like an animal game for the paparazzi " hunters " . Your private life will be on the cover articles of football and gossip magazines . Even your girlfriend and families will not be spared . They will " enjoy " the " spillover effect " from your fame and fortune .
Alright now , are you ready for the climax of this " soap opera " ? Let say , when you reaches the peak of your performance , you suddenly decided to leave the club to find " greener pasture " . If you had really decided to do so , what kind of " public feedback " would you expect ? My prediction , Barcelona will be submerged in a tsunami of angry Catalan supporters , Madrid will crumble under the intense pressure of " REAL " earthquake and Manchester will be the next " Nagasaki " , destroyed by the next " nuclear bomb " from English gentlemen .
So , from here , can you feel how hard it is to be a professional footballer like Lionel Messi , Robin van Persie or Cristiano Ronaldo ? They had to carry a hefty burden of responsibilities on their shoulders . They are expected to deliver the best performance in return for their high payroll , best hospitality and the most conducive environment in which talents like them can be nurtured . Nevertheless , if you want to replace their " royal seat " at the expense of your relaxing lifestyle , then go ahead . I will not stop you .
