Being A Footballer Is Not Easy
Byron gave an interview to UCSGTELEVISION, where he talked about his career and journey.
Like every football player, he also had dreamt of playing for the biggest clubs in the world, and he worked hard for it.
But success comes with a price, and for football players, the saying fits exactly.
Byron revealed that most football player goes through what he has gone through, and it was not easy.
Like many, he also had to stay far away from home, family, and close ones, which was very hard for him.
Staying in a completely new place with completely new people was not easy for him.
But the same sacrifice resulted in him in Barcelona club, and still, he doesn’t seem to stop.
Byron Got Messi’s Jersey
Byron has always seen Messi as one of the players he respects and follows. Like many others, he is a fanboy of Lionel Messi.
Byron had seen Messi play and been near to him a few times, but the international match between Ecuador and Argentina was a day to remember for Byron.
After the end of the match, Byron asked Messi for his shirt and actually got it.
The reaction on the Ecuadorian player was out of price. He was so happy, and he felt so much lucky to get the t-shirt.
Many other players from his country were also asking Messi for his jersey. But Byron was the one who got it.
Byron Lie About His Birthplace
Byron played for Ecuador in international matches, and he was part of the same national team which helped Ecuador to pass the world cup qualifier.
But saying that, Byron had gone through a legal problem before the World Cup event began.
He was blamed to be lying about his birthplace the whole time.
According to Chile and its lawyer, they claimed that Byron was born in Colombia and holds citizenship in the same place.
Moreover, Bryon has no link with Ecuador and has not even gotten its citizenship. So it was illegal to play for Ecuador for Byron.
Chile claimed to have all the proof and valid documents with them, and they were asking FIFA to seriously look into this case.
As the world cup is too near, it is probably the worst news for Ecuador and its team.
Byron Missed The International Matches
Byron was going to go against Brazil and Peru at the international match, but he was sent off by the team to his club.
What actually happened was that he and his teammate were found to be injured, and it was not a normal injury.
Byron just had a knee operation to fix his knee problems, and it was not completely recovered before he came to play for his country.
Being one of the lead players for the country, he was an important player for the team. But his injury was not something to be neglected.
So the team sent him to his club to recover as soon as possible and come back stronger.
