Antonella Roccuzo is the partner of Lionel Messi, a footballer considered by many to be one of the best in the world. Her fiance plays for the footballer powerhouse F.C. Barcelona and as such she is constantly in the spotlight. However, she is very different than most WAGS of prominent footballers as she does everything she can to avoid the spotlight and makes sure that as much attention as possible is directed toward him.
A website called CalcioWeb.eu recently noted how Lionel Messi called her "his talisman" and compared their relationship to that of the Ashley Cole/Cheryl Cole partnership that eventually ended and in the opinion of some footballer observers was a major part of the reason for the latter's decline in form.
I suspect that Antonella Roccuzzo's willingness to stay in the background and not seek the limelight is a major part of the success of Lionel Messi. He does not have to come home after playing football and answer questions about whom his partner may have been seen with or some other drama. Instead, she is focused on supporting him and taking care of their family and this allows him to focus on playing football.
Small wonder that he considers her his 'anchor'. While other footballers might have to worry about what 'escapades' or drama their partners are involved in or what information they might be 'leaking' to the media the F.C. Barcelona star is able to put all his energy toward scoring goals for his club football team because he has a partner he can trust.
There is a saying that beside every successful man there is a good woman who is his partner. Antonella Roccuzzo may not take credit for any of the success of Lionel Messi but I believe that the lack of 'drama' in his personal life is part of the reason for his success on the pitch.
Antonella Roccuzzo may be 'proof' that not all WAGS are crazy, attention-seeking individuals but actually might be necessary for those footballers who want to be able to focus on becoming great at their craft.
