The Nameless Famous Footballer

¸.·'★ I do not wish to name this Footballer in my post out of respect, but you might be able to guess who I am referring to later. This footballer is extremely talented and if he is playing, the opposing team need to be very worried.

When I watched a European Football game, I still remember a game where his Team had to take penalties and the commentator said: He had never ever missed a penalty. I thought to myself "What a reputation!"

Sadly, his negative reputation precedes him. He does what he wants and can be a difficult person to manage, but he delivers the goods. I recall once he scored in a game and took off his football shirt.. that got him a Yellow card. His Manager watching the game closely, must have gone from a high “YES, Good Lad, that's my man” to “Oh my God, why did you take off the Shirt?”

Childrens needs.

But, is he really a pain in the...?

I always take a deeper view on things and the behaviour of people and do not condone his behaviour, but I strongly believe that when parents abandon their child at a tender age, something within that child is missing. Something goes wrong and that builds and carries on until their Teens, even up to adult-hood and this is the case of The nameless Footballer.

Contract Details - Aug 2014

He is due to move soon and the new Football club have agreed to sign him, provided he agrees to strict Conduct Clauses in his contract. Also, his transfer fee is reduced so that if there are any problems, he is easy to offload.

For some, they can manage it and live a respectable life, even though it would still haunt them but for others, it completely affects the course of their life in a negative way. A lot of kids can’t comprehend why their parents gave them away. They feel they were not wanted, no matter how many times the parent says “I love you.”

They feel unloved and many more mixed emotions, which their foundation is built on. They live and act from that place / from those emotions and it can be more intense, if there are Nationality issues.

By now, you have probably worked out, who I am referring to. I wish him well. He is incredibly talented.

♥ BLESSINGS to all men/women who adopt children, including Foster Parents. ♥

I love the quotes and the adorable picture of the smiling little girl. I'm afraid i don't know the person you're writing about, but i agree. Children who lacked love at birth have difficulty growing up and into adulthood. Interesting article. Thank you Elena. Missed you....

Fantastic article, I believe the entertainers of the world missed something during their childhood. Consequently, they spend wildly on drugs, alcohol and external objects hoping to find that missing element. The missing element first must be known, then, it can be found hopefully.

Lady E, I believe with you that childhood difficulties follow a person for life, unless there is ample rehabilitation. The nameless footballer obviously still needs help. Thanks for your observation.

I am not a football fan so I have not a clue to this person's name but I do believe that a person's character has a huge impact on those who follow them. Children are so easily impressed and these values follow them through their lifetime. I hope things work out for this person for the good. Blessings.
