Javier Mascherano has co-authored a book on leadership with Nicolas Miguelez entitled, The 15 Steps of Leadership. Lionel Messi penned the preface and Twitter went into a frenzy when Leo opened up about his compatriot in ink:
“He has his days. Sometimes he comes in wanting to talk and make jokes, but he also has his crazy days. When that’s the case it’s better not to talk to him. We see him there and no one dares to say anything.”
Leo also praised his teammate for his leadership:
“Masche knows how to handle each situation. He is a very positive leader. At the World Cup in Brazil I had the armband, but he was by my side the whole time, fixing each error.”
Leo is no stranger to penning prefaces. He once wrote the foreword to his great friend Sergio Aguero’s autobiography. As for Mashce, think about the great coach this man could become when he hangs up his boots.
