绝处逢生

From The Players’ Tribune: <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>梅西朝着我走过来。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>去年六月我们在澳大利亚和阿根廷踢了一场友谊赛。巴西队刚被判了一个任意球,我和威廉还有另外一个队友站在球边上。任意球并不是要由我来罚,我只是诱饵。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>在这个时候,梅西突然径直走过来看着我说:“怎么样,到底来不来巴萨?”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>就这样,毫无征兆蹦出的一句话,他说完转过身走开了。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>我想都没想,就脱口而出:“如果你想要我,我就去!”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>我很少会在比赛的时候分心,但是从梅西跟我说话到威廉罚出任意球那一刻,我满脑子都是 “他是认真的的吗?他为什么要那么说?天呐,到底发生了什么?”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>当时我正在为中超联赛的广州恒大队效力,没人相信巴萨会对我感兴趣。我觉得他在开玩笑,试着让我分心,但是那只是场友谊赛,至于么?</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>比赛结束以后,我把自己的球衣递给安保让他交给梅西,他从阿根廷队的休息室出来,递给我梅西的球衣。</span></p> <p><i><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>等等,这是真的吗?</span></i></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>但是当我们在澳大利亚的巡回比赛结束后,我返回到中国,完全没有听到任何转会的消息。整整一个月过去了,我把这事给忘了。我当时在中超享受着踢球的乐趣。从七月份开始,我们开始听到各种巴萨想要我的流言。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>我打给我的经纪人:“老大,看在上帝的份上, 能不能告诉我这到底是不是真的?我快疯了!”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>他说:“嗯,这事有点复杂。有可能,也有可能不成。”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>我发短信问内马尔:“兄弟,这是真的吗?你有没有听说什么,我真的快急疯了。”</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>但是当时他自己也在转会的水深火热中,所以他也不确定。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>你们也知道现在的转会是怎么样的一个过程,完全不能相信任何东西。需要考虑的事情和因素有很多,说实话,我当时是真的很享受在中国的时光。我和我的妻子过着很舒适的生活,我在场上表现也很好。在巴萨转会传言开始之前,我一直很心满意足。</span></p> <p><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>球员转会期在八月就要结束了,我觉得没有什么希望了。那个周末恒大正要踢中超决赛,我家里还有从巴西来玩的朋友们。</span></p> <p><span […]
