Despite the victory, Lionel Messi has one regret.
On December 18, 2022, Lionel Messi is finally crowned world champion with Argentina. La Pulga was looking for this trophy before the end of his career. Finally, he got it after an XXL competition.
During the tournament, Lionel Messi had a clash with Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal. After qualifying for the semi-finals, Messi and his teammates mocked the Dutch. a gesture that the PSG striker regrets.
“I didn’t think about it; it came out at the time.” I knew everything they had commented on before the game, including what Van Gaal had commented on. By the way, even some of my teammates told me, “You saw what he said.” And well, when all this ends, I don’t like what I did; I don’t like the “goes” and all that. But hey, these are times of great tension and a lot of nervousness, and everything happens very quickly. We react as we react, but I didn’t think about it at all. It happened. “I don’t like to leave that image, but those are things that happen too,” Messi explained in an interview with TyC Sports.
