University study comes up with three new ways to describe Messi

April 23 is Saint George's Day and it is a major holiday in Catalonia where a passion for literature is celebrated and the Universidad Internacional de Cataluna (UIC) decided to run a competition related to Lionel Messi this year.

The initiative, led by the journalist Miguel Angel Violan, had the goal of coming up with new ways to describe the Barcelona superstar.

"I thought it would be nice to link something academic with something popular like a player who many consider to be the best of all time," Violan said to Efe.

"Some may think there are no more adjectives for him, so this investigation wanted to see how true that is."

There were three new ways to describe the No.10 that made the final shortlist.

One was "re-gol-ucionario", a play on the word "revolucionario".

In English, that would be something like "re-goal-utionary".

The next word was "inadjetivable", or "unadjectivable" in English.

Finally, there was the term "General de Gol", meaning General of Goals and based on General Charles de Gaulle.
