The coexistence of the imaginary hero and the real hero

first_imgLuis Landero “Messi, Cristiano or Mbappé are from the Sherlock Holmes, Tarzan or Tintin lineage” García Montero has the same opinion and values ​​as a “human fantasy” the hero character that is given to the footballer. “Modernity has made a new mythology and footballers have become myths.
